Subject(s): Love

HOW long, how long for thee I've sought,
Until now never finding!
But since thy word hath comfort brought,
On my wound balm't is binding.
The fiery flush of joy's first thrill
Through all my being's glowing;
My woe has fled, want, every ill,
My bliss full health bestowing.

My soul doth now no longer rove;
Upon thy heart't is resting,
Sweeps proudly through thy sea of love,
Knows only mirth and jesting.
Within thy arms it falls asleep,
A thousand kisses giving,
Reflected in thine eyes so deep
As't were in sunshine living.

My burning thirst is now appeased,
My boat in harbor's lying;
In love's cloak wrapped, all suff'ring eased,
To sleep I'm joyous flying.
Thou mine, I thine forevermore,
What grief could torture me, when
Of all my bliss the inmost core
In thee is life, soul, heaven!
