Wer allzu tief in den Himmel schaut

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wer allzu tief in die Sonne schaut,
Der, sagt man, muß erblinden,
Und wer dem alten Spruch nicht traut,
Ihm will ich's neu verkünden.

Ich habe Dir in's Herz geschaut
Und sah Deine große Liebe:
Nun jauchzt es im Busen mir überlaut,
Die Augen doch wurden mir trübe!
