In Mariens Kapelle
Brennt das ewige Licht,
Und die Englein im Himmel
Vergessen mich nicht.

In die weltweite Ferne
Zog mein Schatz schon so lang,
Kein Brief ist gekommen,
Und das Herz ist mir bang.

Kein Tag geht vorüber,
Kein Tag schleicht heran,
So bin ich in Tränen
Und würge daran.

Und wird mir der Kummer
Und das Herzweh zu groß,
So warf ich mein Bündel
Den Englein in Schoß.
