Wie sehr ich dein, soll ich dir sagen?

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie sehr ich dein, soll ich dir sagen?
Ich weiß es nicht und will nicht fragen:
Mein Herz behalte seine Kunde,
Wie tief es dein im Grunde.

O still! ich möchte sonst erschrecken,
Könnt' ich die Stelle nicht entdecken,
Die unzerstört für Gott verbliebe
Beim Tode deiner Liebe.
