Bei der Abendsonne Wandern,
Wann ein Dorf den Strahl verlor,
Klagt sein Dunkeln es den andern
Mit vertrauten Tönen vor.

„Viele Schläge, viele Schläge
Thut an einem Tag das Herz,
Wenig Schläge, wenig Schläge
Thut im Dämmerlicht das Erz!“

Noch ein Glöcklein hat geschwiegen
Auf der Höhe bis zuletzt.
Nun beginnt es sich zu wiegen,
Horch, mein Kilchberg läutet jetzt!

O. Schoeck sets stanzas 1, 3
J. Marx sets stanzas 1, 3
