Hab' oft im Kreise der Lieben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Hab' oft im Kreise der Lieben
  [In duftigem]1 Grase geruht,
Und mir ein [Liedlein]2 gesungen,
  Und alles war hübsch und gut.

Hab' einsam auch mich gehärmet
  [In bangem, düsterem Muth,
Und habe wieder gesungen,
  Und alles war wieder gut.]3

Und manches, was ich erfahren,
  Verkocht' ich in stiller Wuth,
[Und]4 kam ich wieder zu singen,
  War alles auch wieder gut.

[Sollst nicht uns]5 lange klagen,
  Was alles dir wehe thut,
Nur frisch, nur frisch gesungen!
  Und alles wird wieder gut.
