Treibe, treibe, Schifflein schnelle
Durch die leicht bewegte Fluth;
Wiege, wiege, süße Welle,
In der Sterne goldner Gluth;
Töne, Liedlein, durch die Nacht,
Wo die Liebe harrt und wacht.
Liebe, Liebe steht am Strande,
Neckend eilte sie voraus,
Breitet sehnsuchtsvoll vom Lande
Ihre treuen Arme aus.
Töne, Liedlein, durch die Nacht,
Wo die Liebe harrt und wacht.
