Ich wollt, meine [Schmerzen ergössen]1
Sich all in ein [einziges]2 Wort,
Das gäb ich den [lustigen]3 Winden,
Die trügen es lustig fort.

Sie tragen zu dir, Geliebte,
Das [schmerzerfüllte]4 Wort;
Du hörst es zu jeder Stunde,
Du hörst es an jedem Ort.

Und hast du zum nächtlichen Schlummer
Geschlossen die Augen kaum,
So wird [dich mein Wort]5 verfolgen
Bis in den tiefsten Traum.
