O süßer Liebesschmerz!

Language: German (Deutsch)

 O süßer Liebesschmerz!
 Du tötest wie Sirene mit Gesang,
 Erquickst und brichst mein Herz --
 Und machst mit süßer Lust mir angst und bang.
 Dein Ringen, Umschlingen, Umfassen,
 Dein Drücken, Entzücken, Erblassen
 Soll, wird je mein Herzelein flott,
 Mich nimmer berücken, umstricken, bei Gott! --
