All' meine Herzgedanken

Language: German (Deutsch)

All meine Herzgedanken
Sind immerdar bei dir;
Das ist das stille Kranken,
Das innen zehrt an mir.
Da du mich einst umfangen hast,
Ist mir gewichen Ruh und Rast.
All meine Herzgedanken
Sind immerdar bei dir.

Der Maßlieb und der Rosen
Begehr' ich fürder nicht.
Wie [kann]1 ich Lust erlosen,
[Wenn]2 Liebe mir gebricht!
Seit du von mir geschieden bist,
Hab ich gelacht zu keiner Frist;
Der Maßlieb und der Rosen
Begehr' ich fürder nicht.

Gott wolle Die vereinen,
Die für einander sind!
Von Grämen und von Weinen
Wird sonst das Auge blind.
Treuliebe steht in Himmelshut;
Es wird noch Alles, Alles gut.
Gott wolle die vereinen,
Die für einander sind!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
