Horch der Abendglocke Ton, Ave Maria;
im Nachen kniet der Schiffer schon, Ave Maria;
Durch's Spätrot hallt es weit und breit
gegrüßet seist du reine Maid: Ave Maria!

Die du thronst in Wolkenglut, Ave Maria,
nimm unsre Lieb' in deine Hut. Ave Maria
O lass' wie dieses Abends Schein
sie heiter und voll Frieden sein
Ave Maria!
