Alfonsos Cavatina
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA
Wenn ich dich, Holde, sehe,
So glaub' ich keinen Schmerz,
Schon deine bloße Nähe
Beseligt dieses Herz.

Die Leiden sind zerronnen,
Die sonst die Brust gequält,
Es leuchten tausend Sonnen
Der lustentbrannten Welt.

Und neue Kräfte blitzen
Ins trunkne Herz hinein,
Ja, ich will dich beschützen,
Ich will dein Diener sein.
