Wozu der Vöglein Chöre
belauschen fern und nah?
Das Schönste, was ich höre,
ist deine Stimme ja.

Ob die Gestirne flimmern,
ob Nebel sie verhüllt,
die schönsten Sterne flimmern
in deinen Augen mild,
 
Ob Frühling überziehet
mit Blumen Feld und Flur,
die schönste Blume blühet
in deinem Herzen nur.

Die Stimme süß und klagend,
des Auges Stern so rein,
Die Blume, Düfte tragend,
das muß die Liebe sein.
