Auf, gebet uns das Pfingstei

Language: German (Deutsch)

Auf, gebet uns das Pfingstei,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
und reicht den kühlen Trunk herbei,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Wir kommen von dem Bensberg,
hei, Rosenblümelein.
Die Heiden stürmten dort den Berg,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Sie wollten han die Veste,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
Das waren böse Gäste,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Sie stürmten Tor und Mauer,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
An Pfeilen regnet es ein Schauer,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Und als die Pfeile verschossen sein,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
Da regnet es nieder Mauerstein,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Bergab zog da der Böhmen Zahl,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
Bergab ins schöne Wuppertal,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Der Junker Hans war da im Gang,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
Verstand sich auf den Vogelfang,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!

Die Stadt an dem Wupperstrand, 
hei, Rosenblümelein,
Ward Leichelingen da genannt,
hei, Rosenblümelein,
freu dich, wackres Mägdelein!
