Am Kreuzweg wird begraben
Wer selber sich brachte um;
[Dort]1 wächst eine blaue Blume,
Die Armesünderblum'.

Am Kreuzweg [stand]2 ich und seufzte;
Die Nacht war kalt und stumm.
Im Mondschein bewegte sich langsam
Die Armesünderblum'.

Mit schwarzen Segeln segelt mein Schiff
wohl über das wilde Meer;
du weißt, wie sehr ich traurig bin,
und kränkst mich [noch]1 so schwer.

Dein Herz ist treulos wie der Wind
und flattert hin und her;
mit schwarzen Segeln segelt mein Schiff
wohl über das wilde Meer.
