Ach mich hält der Gram befangen,
Meinem Herzen ist so weh,
Denn ich soll von hinnen wandern
Über jenes Berges Höh.

Was einst mein war, wird nicht mehr bleiben,
Meine ganze Hoffnung flieht,
Ja ich fürchte, daß mein Auge,
Mädchen, dich nie wieder sieht.

Dunkel wird mein Pfad sich dehnen,
Wenn ich scheiden muß von hier;
Steh ich dann auf jenem Berge,
Seufz' ich ein Mal noch nach dir.
