Marias Kirchgang

Language: German (Deutsch)

Maria woll't zur Kirche gehn,
da kam sie an den tiefen See.

Als sie wohl an den See hinkam,
der Schiffmann jung stand fertig da.

"Ach, Schiffmann, schiff mich über das Meer,
ich geb' dir was dein Herz begehrt".

"Ich schiffe dich wohl über das Meer,
wenn du willst meine Hausfrau sein".

Soll ich erst deine Hausfrau sein,
viel lieber schwimm'ich über das Meer".

Als sie wohl in die Mitte kam,
fingen alle Glöcklein zu läuten an.

Sie läuten gross, sie läuten klein,
sie läuteten wohl alle zugleich.

Maria kniet auf einen Stein,
dem Schiffmann sprang sein Herz entzwei.
