In einem dunklen Tal
Lag jüngst ich träumend nieder,
Da sah ich einen Strahl
Von meiner Heimat wieder.
 
Auf morgenroter Au
War Vaters Haus gelegen;
Wie war der Himmel blau!
Die Flur wie reich an Segen!
 
Wie war mein Heimatland
Voll Gold und Rosenhelle!
Doch bald der Traum verschwand,
Schmerz trat an seine Stelle.
 
Da irrt' ich weit hinaus
Ins öde Land voll Sehnen.
Noch irr' ich, such' das Haus
Und find' es nicht vor Tränen.

Du schönes Fischermädchen,
Treibe den Kahn an's Land;
Komm zu [mir und setze]1 dich nieder,
Wir kosen Hand in Hand.

Leg' an mein Herz dein Köpfchen,
Und fürchte dich nicht [zu]2 sehr,
[Vertrau'st du dich]3 doch sorglos
Täglich dem wilden Meer.

Mein Herz gleicht ganz dem Meere,
Hat Sturm und Ebb' und Fluth,
Und manche schöne Perle
In seiner Tiefe ruht.
