A young boy and girl follow their parents through the woods, making several inquiries on their ultimate destination. After walking some ways, they notice that they will become lost if they continue. Left by their family, "Hänsel" and "Gretel" soon realize they've been abandoned. Choosing to wander through the forest for some time, the twins fill their glass bottle with moonlight to illuminate the path, though they are not certain that it is the right one. Finally, they reach a house that they've seen before, a "witch's house". They shove the "evil witch" into an oven, and the two ask for praise from their parents for killing the evil witch and her "evil henchman". At the song's end, they decide this is a good place to settle, as it reminds them of their home; they later they resolve to go find their "real mother and father".

What kind of fortune does this path lead to?
Will we be able to eat lots of our favorite snacks?
Beyond this point is God waiting for us?
Do you look at us with such sad faces?
Inside the dark forest
We understood the whole truth
That if we continue in this way
We’ll soon be unable to return
The two of us left all alone
Our names are Hänsel and Gretel
By the small light of the great moon, we don’t know the way home
We walk, a wandering walk
It doesn’t mean we don’t have a clue
A small glass bottle is lit up by the moon
The sparkling light illuminates the way
Nevertheless, we’ll walk
Without knowing whether this is the correct path
Finally we found it, and we understand
This is the witch’s house
Come, let’s attack the evil witch, cast her in the burning stove
When she’s gone, surely we can become happy
Hey mother, praise me
I defeated the evil witch
Hey father, praise me
I defeated the witch’s henchman too
At any rate
This is a really calming place, huh?
It feels as if though long ago,
We used to live here, doesn’t it?
Come, let’s go meet our real mother and father.

Moonlit Bear explains Hänsel and Gretel's past, as it describes the death of their real mother and their theft at the hands of Eve Moonlit.
Chrono Story chronicles the events that occurred a year after Hänsel and Gretel killed Adam and Eve Moonlit, finding the Original Sin among their foster mother's ashes.
And Then the Girl Went Mad -Ending Tale on a Moonlit Night-
Ending Boy Hänsel details the many lives of the titular Hänsel after the events of this song. It also makes a reference the end of Tale of Abandonment on a Moonlit Night with the witch being thrown into the furnace.
The glass bottle present in the song seems to be the same one seen in Moonlit Bear; a similar glass bottle appears in Regret Message.
Their uncertainty on whether or not they travel along the "right path" parallels Moonlit Bear, where Eve describes that the "right path" had already been lost; both songs also share the same melody during that part, although at a different pace.
The song's opening melody is heard at the end of Moonlit Bear.
