Margarete, is alone in her room, sitting at her spinning-wheel. She sings about her heavy heart, how peace has fled from her never to be found, and how upset she is. All her thoughts fall to Faust: his poise, nobility, and fascinating words. Were he to kiss her now, she says, she’d swoon and die. Margarete is distraught that her lover has abandoned her. Being with Faust again would make her so happy that she could die in peace. But, as we will see, being with Faust again leads not to joy but tragedy.

Gretchen confesses her love to Faust, but she knows instinctively that his companion (Mephistopheles) has improper motives. Faust's monologue is juxtaposed with Gretchen's soliloquy at the spinning wheel in the following scene. This monologue is connected thematically with Faust's opening monologue in his study; he directly addresses the Earth Spirit. Gretchen is at her spinning wheel, thinking of Faust. The text of this scene was notably put to music by Franz Schubert in the lied Gretchen am Spinnrade, Op. 2, D. 118 (1814).
