Sommerruh

Language: German (Deutsch)

Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!
Nachtigallenseelen tragen
Ihre weichen süßen Klagen
Sich aus dunkeln Lauben zu.
Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!

Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!
Klare Glockenklänge klingen
Aus der Lüfte lauen Schwingen
Von der mondumblitzten Fluh.
Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!

Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!
Welch ein Leben, himmlisch Weben!
Engel durch die Lüfte schweben
Ihrer blauen Heimat zu.
Sommerruh, wie schön bist du!

Zomertij

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
Nachtegalenzielen dragen
Naar elkaar hun zoete klagen
In de donk're bomenrij.
Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
 
Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
Held're klokkenklanken klinken
Van de rots in 't maneblinken;
Lauwe wind draagt hen voorbij.
Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
 
Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
Wat een leven, hemels weven!
Eng'len door de luchten zweven
Naar hun blauwe hemel blij.
Zomertij, hoe mooi ben jij!
