Ihr lieben Sternelein
Am Himmelszelt
Sagt meinem Liebsten mein
In weiter Welt,
Daß ich in jeder Nacht
So treu um ihn gewacht.
O komm' zurück, mein Lieb,
Ich sehne mich so sehr.
O liebes Sternlein gib
Wohl über Land und Meer
Dem Allerliebsten mein
Den Gruß zur Nacht von mir,
Ich wär' ja so allein
Und warte einsam hier.
