Hör' ich das Liedchen klingen,
Das einst die Liebste sang,
[So will mir die Brust]1 zerspringen
[Vor]2 wildem [Schmerzendrang.]3

[Es treibt mich]4 ein dunkles Sehnen
Hinauf zur Waldeshöh',
Dort löst sich auf in Tränen
Mein übergroßes Weh'.

Leise [zieht]1 durch mein Gemüt
Liebliches Geläute,
Klinge, kleines Frühlingslied,
Kling hinaus ins Weite.

[Kling]2 hinaus bis an das Haus,
Wo die [Blumen]3 sprießen,
Wenn du eine Rose schaust,
Sag, ich laß sie grüßen.

Im Mondenglanze ruht das Meer,
die Wogen murmeln leise;
mir wird das Herz so bang und schwer,
ich denk der alten Weise,
der alten Weise, die uns singt
von den verlornen Städten,
wo aus dem Meeresgrunde klingt
Glockengeläut und Beten -
Das Läuten und das Beten, wißt,
wird nicht den Städten frommen,
denn was einmal begraben ist,
das kann nicht wiederkommen.

Mir [träumte]1 von einem Königskind,
Mit nassen, blassen Wangen;
Wir sassen unter der grünen Lind'
Und hielten uns liebeumfangen.

"Ich will nicht deines Vaters Thron,
Ich will nicht sein Szepter [von]2 Golde,
Ich will nicht seine demantene Kron',
Ich will dich selber, du Holde!"

Das kann nicht sein, sprach sie zu mir,
ich liege ja im Grabe,
und nur des Nachts komm' ich zu dir,
weil ich so lieb dich habe.

Mädchen mit dem roten Mündchen,
mit den Äuglein süß und klar,
Du mein liebes, kleines Mädchen,
deiner denk' ich immerdar.

Lang ist heut der Winterabend,
und ich möchte bei dir sein,
[bei dir sitzen, mit dir schwatzen]1,
im vertrauten Kämmerlein.

An die Lippen [wollt']2 ich pressen

und mit Tränen sie benetzen,

Das Meer erstrahlt im Sonnenschein,
Als ob es golden wär.
Ihr Brüder, wenn ich sterbe,
Versenkt mich in das Meer!

Hab immer das Meer so lieb gehabt,
Es hat mit sanfter Flut
So oft mein Herz gekühlet;
Wir waren einander gut.

Wie der Kuß von ihrem Mund,

In wunderbar süßer Stund'.
