Ich trage meine Minne

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich trage meine Minne 
Vor Wonne stumm
Im Herzen und im Sinne 
Mit mir herum.
Ja, daß ich dich gefunden, 
Du liebes Kind,
Das freut mich alle [Stunde]1, 
Die mir beschieden sind.

[Ob]2 auch der Himmel trübe, 
Kohlschwarz die Nacht,
Hell leuchtet meiner Liebe 
Goldsonn'ge Pracht.
Und [liegt]3 [die]4 Welt in Sünden, 
So tut mir's weh --
Die arge muß erblinden 
Vor deiner Unschuld Schnee.
