Ihr Haine, dunkle Haine,
Will euch mein Leid vertraun,
Mich liebet treu die Meine,
Ach Haine, dunkle Haine,
Und darf nach mir nicht schaun!

Ihr sollt mich umnachten,
Ich will die Welt nicht sehn,
Hier will ich klagen, schmachten,
Ihr sollt mich stets umnachten,
Die Blümchen all vergehn.

Zwei treue Herzen brennen,
Vereint im Liebesbund;
Soll der Verrat sie trennen,
Ach, müssen sie verbrennen,
Vom Gram der Liebe wund?

Zerschmettert, Blitzesflammen,
Was trennt der Herzen Band,
Die Schranken brecht zusammen,
Brechet, ihr Donnerflammen,
Was trennt der Herzen Band!
