Leucht't heller denn die Sonne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Leucht't heller denn die Sonne,
Ihr beiden Äugelein!
Bei dir ist Freud' und Wonne,
Du zartes Jungfräulein,
Du bist mein Augenschein,
Wär ich bei dir allein,
Kein Leid sollt mich anfechten,
Wollt allzeit fröhlich sein!

Dein Reiz ist aus der Maßen
Gleichwie der Blumen Art;
Wenn du gehst auf der Straßen,
Gar oft ich deiner wart,
Ob ich gleich lang muß stehn
Im Regen, Sturm und Schnee,
Kein Müh soll mich verdrießen,
Wenn ich dich, Herzlieb, seh.
