Wohl lag' ich einst in Gram und Schmerz

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wohl lag' ich einst in Gram und Schmerz,
Da weint' ich Nacht und Tag;
Nun wein' ich wieder, weil mein Herz
Sein Glück nicht fassen mag.

Mir ist's, als trüg' ich in der Brust
Das ganze Himmelreich!
O höchstes Leid, o höchste Lust,
Wie seid ihr euch so gleich!
