Es schauet der Morgen mit funkelndem Schein,
Als schauten die Augen des Liebsten herein.

Er will mich umfangen mit duftigem Hauch,
es breitet verlangend die Arme der Strauch,

Da singen die Blätter in Liebe so hold
Es klingen die Lüfte und glänzen wie Gold.

Wie köstliches Leben! wie selig die Brust!
So atmen und schweben in ewiger Lust.

Die Träume des Himmels sie werden mir nah,  --  
O wärst du, Geliebter, O wärst du schon da!

J. Loewe sets stanzas 1-4
