Wie ich dich liebe

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie ich dich liebe, 
Soll ich dir sagen? 
Wie ich dich liebe, 
Kannst du mich fragen? 

O du mein Alles,
Das ich nicht lasse! 
Einz'ger Gedanke 
Den ich noch sasse! 

Weil ich dich liebe, 
Kann ich's nicht sagen;
Kann ich nur stumm die 
Seligkeit tragen.

Schau mir in's Auge 
Lass' dich umfassen -- 
Wirst mir die Antwort,
Liebster, erlassen.

Wie das im Herzen 
Wonniglich wühlet, 
Das kann nur sagen 
Wer es nicht fühlet.
