Lieben, Hassen, Hoffen, Zagen, Harlequin's aria, Ariadne auf Naxos

Lieben, Hassen, Hoffen, Zagen,
Alle Lust und alle qual,
Alles kann ein Herz ertrain
Einmal um das andre Mal.
Aber weder Lust noch Schmerzen,
Abgestorben auch der Pein,
Das ist tötlich deinem Herzen,
Und so mußt du mir nicht sein!
Mußt dich aus dem Dunkel heben
Wär es auch um neue Qual!
Leben mußt du, liebes Lebem
Leben noch dies eine Mal.
