Text by Schubert: Süße heilige Natur,
Laß mich gehn auf deiner Spur,
Leite mich an deiner Hand,
Wie ein Kind am Gängelband.

Wenn ich dann ermüdet bin,
Sink ich dir am Busen hin,
Athme süße Herzenslust,
Hangend an der Mutterbrust.

Ach, wie wohl ist mir bey dir!
Will dich lieben für und für,
Laß mich gehn auf deiner Spur
Süße heilige Natur
