Morgenlied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Erwacht in neuer Stärke,
Begrüß' ich, Gott, dein Licht,
Und wend' auf deine Werke
Mein frohes Angesicht.
Wie herrlicht strahlt die Sonn' empor
Und weckt des Lebens lauten Chor!

Von Jubelliedern schallen
Schon Feld, Gebüsch und Luft,
Und aus des Waldes Hallen
Strömt frisch der Morgenduft.
Das Vöglein schüttelt ab den Tau,
Fliegt auf und singt im hellen Blau.

Schon höher schwebt die Sonne
In ihrem Siegeslauf,
Was lebt, das atmet Wonne,
Und was da schlief, wacht auf.
O Gott, in deinem Sonnenschein,
Wie herrlich ist's lebendig sein!

Morgenlied

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

Ontwaakt met nieuwe sterkte
Begroet ik, God, uw licht,
En keer toe naar uw werken
Mijn blije aangezicht.
Hoe heerlijk breekt de zon al door
En wekt van ’t leven ’t luide koor!
 
Veel jubellied’ren schallen,
Het veld is vol gerucht
En uit het bos, zijn hallen,
Stroomt frisse morgenlucht.
De vogel schudt nu af de dauw,
Vliegt op en zingt in ’t helle blauw.
 
De zon klimt duizend vadem,
Stijgt stralend op, volmaakt;
Wat leeft haalt zalig adem
En wat eerst sliep ontwaakt.
O God, zo in uw zonneschijn,
Wat is ’t daarin te leven fijn!
