Im wunderschönen Monat Mai,
Als alle Knospen sprangen, 1 
Da ist in meinem Herzen
Die Liebe aufgegangen.

Im wunderschönen Monat Mai,
Als alle Vögel sangen, 2
Da hab' ich ihr gestanden
Mein Sehnen und Verlangen.

Wo geht der Weg nach Bethlehem,
Ihr lieben Buben und Mädchen?

Die Jungen und Alten, sie [wußten es]1 nicht,
Die Könige zogen weiter;
Sie folgten einem goldenen Stern,

O lägg din kind intill min kind,
Då Mötas de, tårarnas strömmar;
Mitt hjärta till ditt hjärta tryck

Ömt till mitt hjärta dig sluter
Av kärlek och längtan förgås jag då
Och sista sucken jag gjuter.
