Speleman, nu moogt gij zwijgen
wilt gij wezen vroed.
Ziet gij niet mijn boezem hijgen?
Speleman, moogt gij zwijgen,
want ge speelt te zoet.

Tranen blinken in hare oogen;
ik schenk heur mijn hart,
Dat ze zal bewaren mogen.
Tranen blinken in hare oogen,
Scheiden, welke smart!

Kind, gij zult het trouw bewaren
tot ik weder keer.
Bij u vreest het geen gevaren,
Kind, gij zult mijn hart bewaren,
Scheiden doet zoo zeer.
