Ihr Vöglein in den Lüften,
Schwingt mit Gesang euch fort
Und grüßet mir den teuren,
Den lieben Heimatsort! 

Ihr Lerchen, nehmt die Blüten,
Die zarten mit hinaus! 
Ich schmückte sie zur Zierde
Für's teure Vaterhaus. 

Du Nachtigall, o schwinge 
Dich doch zu mir herab
Und nimm die Rosenknospe
Auf meines Vaters Grab!
