Subject(s): Happiness; Love; Joy; Delight

WHERE shall I take my love? I'm weary,
Where rest obtain?
The day was cold, the evening 's dreary,
No house I'll gain --
In barren fields, through darkness pressing,
No one is near;
Where with my love I'm rest possessing
Must not be here.

What shall I do with my love, weighing
So heavily?
Shall I it from the world conveying
Sink in the sea?
But then 't would sleep in depths receiving
No sunshine fair;
So I must therefore, my love leaving,
Consign elsewhere.

Where then shall I with love be driven?
To yonder hearth?
Ay, there unto the greatest love is given
Its righteous worth;
And as, from store of fagots feeding
Piece after piece,
For other's joys, not mine, aye pleading,
Find happiness!
