O Sonne, o Sonne, du ziehest
Wol über die Berge und Höh'n,
So grüße mein herziges Liebchen
Ich hab's heut' nimmer geseh'n.

O Sonne, dort drüben am Hause
Zwei Weiden, zwei Weiden wehn;
[Vor]1 ihrem offenen Fenster
Zwei Lorbeerrosen steh'n.

O scheidende Sonne, du ziehest
Wol über die Berge und Höh'n,
So grüße mein herziges Liebchen,
Die dunkeln Augen mir schön.
