So wart bis ich dies dir noch künde

Language: German (Deutsch)

So wart bis ich dies dir noch künde:
Daß ich dich erbete - begehre.
Der tag ohne dich ist die sünde,
Der tod um dich ist die ehre.

Wenn einen die Finstren erlasen:
So schreit ICH die traurige stufe.
Die nacht wirft mich hin auf den rasen.
Gib antwort dem fliehenden rufe 

Laß mich in die himmel entschweben!
Du heb dich vom grund als gesunder!
Bezeuge und preise mein wunder
Und harre noch unten im leben!
