Mit unnennbarer Seligkeit

Language: English

Mit unnennbarer Seligkeit
Entströmt der Brust des Sanges Quell
  Und wallet dir entgegen,
    Von [deinem Zauber]1 hell.

Er bringt dir manches Rosenblatt,
Das still in seine Wellen sank, --
  Das ist der Liederquelle
    Entzückter Blumendank.

Das ist der Dank des Liederquells,
Den du erweckt und eingeweiht,
  Der nun dich laut [umklinget]2
    In stiller Seligkeit!
