Habet Acht/ Auf der Jagd!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Habet Acht
Auf der Jagd!
Mancher ist zu Grund gegangen,
Weil der Nachbar sich verfangen,
Und ein Lauf ist los gegangen!
[Auf der Jagd
Habet Acht!]1

Habet Acht
Auf der Jagd!
Mancher schoss den Nachbar nieder
Denn es fahren Aug' und Glieder
In der Hitze hin und wieder,
Habet Acht
Auf der Jagd!

Habet Acht
Auf der Jagd!
Rasch ist noch nicht unbesonnen,
Blinde Hast hat nie gewonnen,
Halb gezielt ist ganz zerronnen --
[Auf der Jagd
Habet Acht!]1

Habet Acht
Auf der Jagd!
Des geschossnen Kameraden
Denke jeder jetzt beim Laden;
Helfe Gott dem Kameraden,
Der vollbracht!
Gute Nacht.

Gute Nacht!
Wer vollbracht!
Bei des Mannes schönstem Drange,
Bei der Schüsse lust'gem Klange,
Traf ihn rasch des Todes Schlange!
Gute Nacht!
Wer vollbracht!

Prends garde

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

Prends garde
À la chasse !
Mainte personne a péri
Parce que son voisin s'est pris les pieds
Et le coup est parti !
Prends garde
À la chasse !

Prends garde
À la chasse !
Mainte personne a tiré sur son voisin
Car l'œil et les membres
Vont et viennent dans le feu de l'action.
Prends garde
À la chasse !

Prends garde
À la chasse !
Vite ne veut pas dire irréfléchi,
La hâte aveugle n'a jamais réussi,
Viser à moitié est rater complètement.
Prends garde
À la chasse !

Prends garde
À la chasse !
Du camarade sur qui on a tiré
Chacun devrait penser en chargeant :
Que Dieu aide le camarade
Qui a expiré !
Bonne nuit !

Bonne nuit !
À celui qui a expiré !
Au milieu des plus beaux désirs de l'homme,
Au milieu du bruit joyeux de la fusillade,
Le serpent de la mort l'a frappé rapidement !
Bonne nuit !
À celui qui a expiré !
