Nach diesen trüben Tagen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nach diesen trüben Tagen,
Wie ist so hell das Feld!
Zerrißne Wolken tragen
Die Trauer aus der Welt.

Und Keim und Knospe mühet
Sich an das Licht hervor,
Und manche Blume blühet
Zum Himmel still empor.

Ja, auch so gar die Eichen
Und Reben werden grün!
O Herz, das sei dein Zeichen,
Werde froh und kühn!

Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE

L'arrivée du printemps

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Après ces jours sinistres,
Comme les champs brillent !
Des nuages déchirés portent
La tristesse hors du monde.

Et les germes et les boutons luttent
Pour sortir à la lumière,
Et maintes fleurs fleurissent
Silencieusement vers le ciel.

Oui, même les chênes
Et les vignes deviennent verts !
Ô cœur, que cela soit ton signal,
Deviens joyeux et audacieux !
