Willkommen schöner Jüngling!
Du Wonne der Natur!
Mit deinem Blumenkörbchen
Willkommen auf der Flur!

Ey! ey! Da bist [ja]1 wieder!
Und bist so [lieb und schön]2!
Und freun wir uns so herzlich,
Entgegen dir zu gehn.

Denkst auch noch an mein Mädchen?
Ey lieber denke doch!
Dort liebte mich das Mädchen,
Und 's Mädchen liebt mich noch!

Fürs Mädchen manches Blümchen
[Erbat]3 ich mir von dir -
Ich komm' und bitte wieder,
Und du? - du giebst es mir?

Willkommen schöner Jüngling!
Du Wonne der Natur!
Mit deinem Blumenkörbchen
Willkommen auf der Flur.4

Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt
Weiß, was ich leide!
Allein und abgetrennt
Von aller Freude
[Seh]1 ich an's Firmament
Nach [jener]2 Seite.
[Ach,]3 der mich liebt und kennt,
Ist in der Weite.
Es [schwindelt]4 mir, es brennt
Mein Eingeweide.
Nur wer die Sehnsucht kennt
Weiß, was ich leide!

Im [Felde]1 [schleich']2 ich still und wild,
Gespannt mein Feuerrohr.
Da schwebt so licht dein liebes Bild
Dein süßes Bild mir vor.

Du wandelst jetzt wohl still und mild
Durch Feld und liebes Thal,
Und ach mein schnell verrauschend Bild
Stellt sich dir's nicht einmal?

Des Menschen, der die Welt durchstreift
Voll Unmuth und Verdruß,
Nach Osten und nach Westen schweift,
Weil er dich lassen muß.

Mir ist es, denk' ich nur an dich,
Als in den Mond zu sehn;
Ein stiller Friede kommt auf mich,
Weiß nicht wie mir geschehn.

[Dem]1 Schnee, [dem]1 Regen,
Dem Wind entgegen,
Im Dampf der Klüfte,
Durch Nebeldüfte,
Immer zu! Immer zu!
Ohne Rast und Ruh!

Lieber durch Leiden
[Möcht']2 ich mich schlagen,
Als so viel Freuden
Des Lebens ertragen.
Alle das Neigen
[Von]3 Herzen zu Herzen,
Ach wie so eigen
Schaffet [das]4 Schmerzen!

Wie soll ich [fliehen?]5
Wälderwärts [ziehen?]6
[Alles]7 vergebens!
Krone des Lebens,
Glück ohne Ruh,
Liebe, bist du!

Nacht umhüllt
Mit wehendem Flügel
[Thäler und Hügel]1,
Ladend zur Ruh.

Und dem Schlummer,
Dem lieblichen Kinde,
Leise und linde
Flüstert sie zu:

"Weißt du ein Auge,
Wachend [im]2 Kummer,
Lieblicher Schlummer,
Drücke mir's zu."

Fühlst du sein Nahen?
Ahnest du Ruh?
Alles deckt [Schlummer]3,
[Schlummre]4 auch du.
