Schöner Sonnengott, du fliehest?
Zögre noch und bleibe hier,
Denn das Auge des Geliebten
Rufst du in die Seele mir!

Sonnengleich kam er gezogen,
Ach! wie hell ward mein Geschick!
Einen Himmel von Gedanken
Schloss mir auf sein Frühlingsblick.

Er ist weit, willst du auch scheiden?
Soll ich ganz umnachtet sein?
Weile, liebe Sonne, weile,
Bleib mit deinem goldnen Schein!
