Saatengrün, Veilchenduft, 
Lerchenwirbel, Amselschlag, 
Sonnenregen, linde Luft! 

Wenn ich solche Worte singe, 
Braucht es [dann]1 noch großer Dinge, 
Dich zu preisen, Frühlingstag?

Leise [zieht]1 durch mein Gemüt
Liebliches Geläute,
Klinge, kleines Frühlingslied,
Kling hinaus ins Weite.

[Kling]2 hinaus bis an das Haus,
Wo die [Blumen]3 sprießen,
Wenn du eine Rose schaust,
Sag, ich laß sie grüßen.

Die [linden]1 Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und [weben]2 Tag und Nacht,
Sie schaffen an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun, armes Herze, sey nicht bang!
Nun muß sich Alles, Alles wenden.

Die Welt wird schöner mit jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tieffste Thal.
Nun, armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich Alles, Alles wenden.

Vorfrühling seufzt in weiter Nacht,
daß mir das Herze brechen will;
die Lande ruhn so menschenstill,
nur ich bin aufgewacht.

Oh horch, nun bricht des Eises Wall
auf allen Strömen, allen Seen;
mir ist, ich müßte mit vergehn
und, Woge, wieder auferstehn
zu neuem Klippenfall.

Die Lande ruhn so menschenstill;
nur hier und dort ist wer erwacht,
und seine Seele weint und lacht,
wie es der Tauwind will.

Die Ammer flötet tief im Grund,
der Frühling blüht mein Herz gesund.

Über die Augen halt ich die Hand,
schimmernd liegt vor mir das Land.

Schimmernd wie ein goldener Rauch,
über allen Dingen ruht ein Hauch.

So still, so sonnig hängt die Luft,
über die ganze Welt weht Veilchenduft.

Über die ganze Welt, ungesehn
leise, leise Sonntagsglocken gehn.

Die Ammer flötet tief im Grund,
der Frühling blüht mein Herz gesund.

[Über'n]1 Garten durch die Lüfte
Hört' ich Wandervögel ziehn,
Das bedeutet Frühlingsdüfte,
Unten fängt's schon an zu blühn.

Jauchzen möcht' ich, möchte weinen,
Ist mir's doch, als könnt's nicht sein!
[Alte]2 Wunder wieder scheinen
Mit dem [Mondesglanz]3 herein.

Und der Mond, die Sterne sagen's,
Und im [Träumen]4 rauscht's der Hain,
Und die Nachtigallen schlagen's:
Sie ist deine! Sie ist dein!
