Liebeshymnus

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heil jenem Tag, der dich geboren,
heil ihm, da ich zuerst dich sah!
In deiner Augen Glanz verloren
steh' ich, ein sel'ger Träumer, da.

Mir scheint der Himmel aufzugehn,
den ich von ferne nur geahnt,
und eine Sonne darf ich sehn,
daran die Sehnsucht nur gemahnt.

Wie schön mein Bild in diesem Blicke!
In diesem Blick mein Glück wie groß!
Und flehend ruf' ich zum Geschicke:
O weile, weile, wandellos!
