In des Sees Wogenspiele
Fallen durch den Sonnenschein
Sterne, ach, gar viele, viele,
Flammend leuchtend stets hinein.

Wenn der Mensch zum See geworden,
In der Seele Wogenspiele
Fallen aus des Himmels Pforten
Sterne, ach, gar viele, viele.

Bij het meer
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
In de golven ziet men spelen
- Vallend door de zon in 't meer -
Sterren, ach, zo vele, vele,
Vlammend, lichtend, steeds maar weer.
 
Is de mens tot meer geworden,
In zijn zielegolven spelen
- Vallend uit de hemelpoorten -
Sterren, ach, zeer vele, vele.
