Die Nacht vergeht nach süßer Ruh,
hör mein Gebet, Allmächt'ger, du!
Der du dein Bild, den Menschen, schufst,
die Gattin mild ans Herz ihm rufst.
O, laß den Trieb der Liebe mein
der ew'gen Lieb' ein Abbild sein,
daß jeder Tag, mit ihm vereint,
mir scheinen mag, wie dieser scheint.
Bis Liebe geht dem Himmel zu
hör' mein Gebet, Allmächt'ger, du!
