 Doch im Getümmel der Schlacht,
 Umrungen von Gräuel und Blut
 Gab mir nicht Ehre und Macht
 Zu siegen den blitzenden Muth.
 Nur deine süße Gestalt,
 Die mir im Kampfe erschien,
 Zog mich mit Himmelsgewalt
 Durch die drohenden Feinde dahin.
 Nur dein lächelnder Blick
 Gab mir die Stärke, den Sieg,
 Nur dein liebender Blick
 Gibt mir Belohnung und Glück.
