Beharre!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Scheide, ach scheide
Doch nur von Liebe nicht,
Wird Liebe gleich zu Leide,
Sie ist des Lebens Licht!
Scheid', o scheide von Liebe nicht!

Scheide, ach scheide
Doch nur von Hoffnung nicht,
Sie ist ein Stern im Leide,
Ein Gottvergißmeinnicht!
Scheid', o scheide von Hoffnung nicht!

Scheide, ach scheide
Doch nur vom Glauben nicht!
Der sagt dir, liebe, leide,
Und hoff' in meinem Licht!
Scheid', o scheide vom Glauben nicht!

Scheide, ach scheide
Doch nur vom Leide nicht!
Wer nicht kennt Lieb' im Leide,
Der kennt nicht Lieb' im Licht!
Scheid', o scheide vom Leide nicht!
