Text:

Wie wohl ist mir, o Freund der Seelen,
Wenn ich in deiner Liebe ruh'.
Ich steige aus der Schwermuts-Höhlen
Und eile deinen Armen zu.
Da muss die Nacht des Traurens scheiden,
Wenn mit so angenehmen Freuden
Die Liebe strahlt aus deiner Brust.
Hier ist mein Himmel schon auf Erden,
Wer wollte nicht vergnüget werden,
Der in dir findet Ruh und Lust.
