Über die Heide geht mein Gedenken,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Nach dir, nach dir allein;

Über die Heide möchte ich wandern,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Bei dir zu sein.

Über die Heide flogen die Schwalben,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Sie grüßten [mich]2 von dir;

Über die Heide [krächzten]3 die Raben,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Antwort von [mir]4.

Über die Heide [fallen die Flocken]5,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Und [fußhoch liegt der]6 Schnee;

Über die Heide ging einst mein [Hoffen]7,
[Du kleines Mädchen]1,
Ade, Ade!
