Kniend im Staube lieg ich vor dir, 
Du bist mein Glaube und mein Brevier. 
Du bist mein Lieben, du bist mein Hort, 
Mein Hoffen drüben. Mein Himmel dort. 

Bist meine Wahrheit und bist mein Traum. 
Bist die Erkenntnis in Zeit und Raum. 
Du bist das Gute, das Ding an sich. 
Du bist die Schönheit. Ich liebe dich.
