Gesang (von außen, dumpf, monoton)
 Leg' in den Sarg mir mein grünes Gewand,
                     Trubor! Trubor!
 Sporen zu Füßen, den Jagdspieß zur Hand,
                     Trubor! Trubor!
 Fütt're die Rüden, ich hab' sie geliebt,
 Streichle mein Rößlein, es steht so trübt!

[. . .]1

Gesang
 Mach' mir die Grube acht Fuß in dem Grund,
                     Trubor! Trubor!
 Streich' aus einander das Erdreich rund,
                     Trubor! Trubor!
 Primeln entblühen dem Rasen im Mai,
 Achtlos jaget der Tartar vorbei. --
