Zwischen Schmerz und Freuden,
Leben, fließe hin!
Hab' ich doch von beiden
Reichlichsten Gewinn!

Gottes Schönheit seh' ich,
Wie ich froh bin, ein;
Holde Pflicht -- versteh' ich --
Soll mir Freude seyn.

Kommen dann die Schmerzen --
Kommt nur immerhin!
Lehrt bereitem Herzen
Kraft und Menschensinn!

So, in dunkler Tage,
Wie in heller, Lauf,
Baut, aus Lust und Klage,
Sich die Weisheit auf.

Rinne, Strom des Lebens,
Rinne nur so zu!
Kannst doch nicht vergebens,
Flücht'ge Welle, du!

Liebe war am Quelle,
Liebe war im Hain --
Liebe wird, o Welle!
Wo du landest, seyn.
