Trinklied

Language: German (Deutsch)

Stimme:
Funkelnd im Becher
So helle so hold,
Blinket hochschäumend,
Blinkt perlend das Gold
Der süssen, der köstlichen Reben.

Es glänzet auch uns wohl
So freundlich, so hold,
Hell wie der Reben
Erquickendes Gold
Das wogende herrliche Leben.

Chor:
Drum, freudiger Zecher,
Erhebet die Becher,
Es funkelt der Wein
Wohl so [freundlich]1, so hold,
Es funkelt das wogende
Leben wie Gold!
Trinket! Trinket!
