Einen Menschen heiß zu lieben

Language: German (Deutsch)

Einen Menschen heiß zu lieben
Mit der ganzen ganzen Menschenbrust,
Sich bewusst der Gegenliebe
Das ist höchste höchste Erdenlust!

Was auch Sterbliche hoch preisen,
Was das Leben großes Beut,
Alles, alles überstrahlet,
Solcher Liebe Seligkeit.

Tugend, Schönheid, Ruhm und Größe
Wohl den Menschen ehrt und schmückt,
Doch von ganzer Seele lieben
Das allein allein allein beglückt!
