Du schönes Fischermädchen,
Treibe den Kahn an's Land;
Komm zu [mir und setze]1 dich nieder,
Wir kosen Hand in Hand.

Leg' an mein Herz dein Köpfchen,
Und fürchte dich nicht [zu]2 sehr,
[Vertrau'st du dich]3 doch sorglos
Täglich dem wilden Meer.

Mein Herz gleicht ganz dem Meere,
Hat Sturm und Ebb' und Fluth,
Und manche schöne Perle
In seiner Tiefe ruht.

Du schönes Fischermädchen,
Siehst du den Abendstern?
O komm zur stillen Hütte,
Wer liebt ist einsam gern!

In deine Fesseln lege
Den trotzigen wilden Sinn,
Sanft wie die Rosenwalle
Lenk' ihn zum Frieden hin.

Da draussen auf dem Meere
Ist oft Getahr und Not,
Senk' in mein Herz den Anker
Von deinem Lebensboot.
