Beglückt, wer an des Treuen Brust

Language: German (Deutsch)

Beglückt, wer an des Treuen Brust,
   In voller Liebe ruht,
Kein Kummer naht und stört die Lust,
   Nur heller brennt die Glut.
Kein Wechsel, kein Wanken,
   Zum ruhigen Glück
Fliehn alle Gedanken
   Der Ferne zurück.
Und lieber und bänger
   Drückt Mund sich an Mund,
So inn'ger, so länger:
   Von Stunde zu Stund.
Beschränkter und enger
   Der liebliche Bund.
