Edition notes: A semi-diplomatic edition. The note-values are kept as in the original. No transposition has been made. Ficta is added but sparingly. The original print contains the lyrics of the whole folksong (3 verses) but only the first line of the 1 verse is printed beneath the staves. All text underlay is therefore editorial.

1. Ich clag[/]
den tag/
unnd alle stund/

das werd getrost die liebste mein.

3. Unglück/

mein gros elendt/
zu gutem endt/
mit freuden wendt/
durch glück gelendt.

1. I complain [/]
all day/
and all hours /
that my love/
have not been in good health/
I have been hurt/
my heart sorrows with good reason.

2. How I wish/
without complain/
my heart only be/
meanwhile great pain/
multiply in it/
my sun/
to comfort my dearest.

3. misfortune /
your shadows/
swiftly turn from me /
do it swiftly!
My big misery/
let end well/
turning it to pleasure/
bringing joy anew.
