Traun! Bogen und Pfeil

Language: German (Deutsch)

Traun! Bogen und Pfeil
Sind gut für den Feind,
Hülflos alleweil
Der Elende weint;
Dem Edlen blüht Heil,
Wo Sonne nur scheint,
Die Felsen sind steil,
Doch Glück ist sein Freund.


Translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA TUR

Van handboog en pijl

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

Van handboog en pijl
Heeft de1 vijand profijt.
Hulploos onderwijl
De machtloze schreit.
De noob'le vindt heil
Waar 't zonlicht hem dient,
De rotsen zijn steil,
Maar geluk2 is zijn vriend.
