Es fiel ein Reif in [der]1 Frühlingsnacht 
wohl über die [schöne]2 [Blaublümelein]3,
sie sind verwelket, verdorret.

Ein Knabe hatt' ein Mägdlein lieb, 
sie liefen heimlich von Hause fort,
es wußt's nicht Vater, noch Mutter.

Sie liefen weit [ins fremde Land]4,
sie hatten weder Glück, noch Stern,
sie sind verdorben, gestorben.

Auf ihrem Grab Blaublümlein blühn,
Umschlingen sich treu, wie sie im Grab,
Der Reif sie nicht welket, nicht [dörret]5.
