Wie wundersam ist dies Verlorengeh'n

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie wundersam ist dies Verlorengeh'n
In Liebestiefen ohne Ziel [und]1 Schranken:
Die ganze Welt mit lichten Augen seh'n,
Im Sonnenschimmer klarer Freude geh'n,
Eins sein in einem [tiefen]2 Glücksgedanken!

Und wie im Leben auch die Stürme weh'n,
Da ist kein Zagen [und da]2 ist kein Schwanken:
Fest steht die Liebe, wie die Sterne steh'n -
Wie wundersam ist dies Verlorengeh'n
In Liebestiefen ohne Ziel [und]1 Schranken!
