Mir Armen, den des Fiebers Kraft

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mir Armen, den des Fiebers Kraft
Fast nötigt [ins]1 Grab zu sinken,
verbeut der Arzt den Rebensaft
und heißt mich Wasser trinken.
Ihr Götter, steht mir Armen bei!
schafft, daß der Wein nicht tödtlich sei;
[Wie? oder]2 laßt, Gesundheit zu erwecken,
das Wasser besser schmecken.
