Když bůh byl nejvíc rozkochán

Language: Czech (Čeština)

Když bůh byl nejvíc rozkochán,
tu lidské srdce stvořil,
a pak na věčnou památku
v ně svoji lásku vložil.

A když pak na něm utkvělo
to oko jeho věstí,
radostí až se rozplakal,
když viděl vše to štěstí.

Leč při tom pláči -- do srdce
se jedna slza vkradla,
jako ta rosa v kalíšek,
a na samé dno padla.

A proto láska velký bol,
leč bol tak sladký, milý,
že škoda srdcí nastokrát,
jež bol ten necítily.

A proto láska štěstí půl
a polovic je muka,
leč když se slza rozvlní,
tu leckdy srdce puká.
