Mußt nicht vor dem Tage fliehen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mußt nicht vor dem Tage fliehen:
Denn der Tag, den du ereilest,
Ist nicht besser als der heut'ge;
Aber wenn du froh verweilest,
Wo ich mir die Welt beseit'ge,
Um die Welt an mich zu ziehen,
Bist du gleich mit mir geborgen:
Heut ist heute, morgen morgen,
Und was folgt und was vergangen,
Reißt nicht hin und bleibt nicht hangen.
Bleibe du, mein Allerliebstes;
Denn du bringst es, und du gibst es.
