1. Es hat die Rose sich beklagt [sung text not yet checked]

  Es hat die Rose sich beklagt,
Daß gar zu schnell der Duft [vergehe]1,
Den ihr der Lenz gegeben habe --

  Da hab' ich ihr zum Trost gesagt,
Daß er durch meine Lieder wehe
Und [dort]2 ein ew'ges Leben habe.

2. Das letzte Kännchen [sung text not yet checked]

Gib mir, trautes Ännchen,
Einen Abschiedskuss
Und das letzte Kännchen,
Weil ich scheiden muss.

An die Tür der Kammer
Schreibe meine Schuld,
Harre sonder Jammer
Meiner in Geduld.

Wird auf grüner Heide
Draussen mir ein Grab,
Wische sanft die Kreide
Mit der Schürze ab.

3. Du bist die Ruh', der Friede mild [sung text not yet checked]

Du bist die Ruh,
Der Friede mild,
Die Sehnsucht du,
Und was sie stillt.

Ich weihe dir
[Voll]1 Lust und Schmerz
Zur Wohnung hier
Mein Aug' und Herz.

Kehr' [ein bei mir]2,
Und schließe du
Still hinter dir
Die Pforten zu.

Treib andern Schmerz
Aus dieser Brust.
Voll sey dies Herz
[Von]3 deiner Lust.

Dies Augenzelt
Von deinem Glanz
Allein erhellt,
O füll' es ganz.
