Faßt denn ein Kelch den gold'nen Schein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Faßt denn ein Kelch den gold'nen Schein
  der ganzen grossen Sonne?
Und Du, mein Herz, Du bist so klein,
  und willst allein
  die ganze Erdenwonne?
Der Liebe Unermeßlichkeit
  begrenzt im Raum, -
und aller Himmel Seligkeit
  im Lebenstraum?
