Es goß mein volles Leben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es goß mein volles Leben
sich selig vor dir aus,
in Arme magst du's heben
und tragen in dein Haus.
All Leid und alles Wissen
ihm abgeworfen sind,
es harret deiner Winke,
es ist nur wie ein Kind.
Es will dich ganz umschlingen,
tauchen ins Auge dein
und trunken bei dir singen:
"Wir werden Eines sein."
