Naht euch dem Strande --
Geliebter sag, wo weilt dein Sinn? --
Dir töne Lob! die Wunder sei'n gepriesen --
Dank deiner Huld, gepriesen sei dein Lieben! --
Geliebter! Komm, sieh dort die Grotte --
Stets soll nur dir, nur dir mein Lied ertönen --
Zieh hin! zieh hin! --
Frau Holda kam aus dem Berg hervor --
Zu dir wall ich, mein Jesus Christ --
Wer ist der dort in brünstigem Gebete? --
Als du in kühnem Sange uns bestrittest --
Dich, teure halle, grüß ich wieder --

Willkommen, ungetreuer Mann! --
