Abschied, welch ein schmerzlich Bangen
Nennet doch dies Wort!
Alles, was wir heiß verlangen
Nimmt der Abschied fort.

Abschied ist so mancher Zähre,
Manchen Kummers Grund;
Wenn ein Lebewohl ich höre,
Abschied seufzt der Mund.

Abschied mahnt an Nimmersehen,
Mahnet an den Tod,
Mahnt, daß Freuden stets vergehen,
Alles Trennung droht.
