Sei mein!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Tief im Gemüt
Mir Liebe glüht,
Und wem sie blüht
Sollst du sein,
Sollst all mein Drang
Die Tage lang,
Mein Nachtgesang
Zur Ruh' sein.

Wär' Glück mir hold,
All Gut und Gold,
Das deine sollt'
Im Nu sein;
Doch höchstes Gut,
Mein Lust und Mut,
Mein Herzensblut
Sollst du sein!

Sollst bis zum Tod
Mein Himmelsbrot,
Mein Wein so rot
Dazu sein.
O komm und bleib,
Mein Lieb, mein Weib,
Mein Seel' und Leib
Sollst du sein!
