Lehn deine Wang' an meine Wang',
Dann fließen die Thränen zusammen;
Und an mein Herz drück fest dein Herz,
Dann schlagen zusammen die Flammen!

Und wenn in die große Flamme fließt
Der Strom von unsern Thränen,
Und wenn dich mein Arm gewaltig umschließt -
Sterb' ich vor Liebessehnen!

[Jensen: mein Arm dich]
