Es muß so manches Kräutlein blühn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Es muß so manches Kräutlein blühn,
Bis man am Strauch die Rose schaut,
Manch Vögelein muß zwitschern,
Bis Nachtigall ihr Nest gebaut. 

Und dicht betrübt, daß ich geliebt,
Ob auch so selig nie, wie jetzt?
Wie Kinder sind Lenz und Liebe:
Ihr Liebstes sparen sie bis zuletzt.
