Kommt, laßt uns geh'n spazieren

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Kommt, laßt uns geh'n spazieren
Durch den vielgrünen Wald!
Die Vögel musizieren,
Daß Berg und Tal erschallt.

  Wohl dem, der frei kann singen,
Wie du, du Volk der Luft,
Und seine Stimme schwingen
Zu dem, auf den er hofft.

  Wohl jedem, der frei lebet
Wie du, du leichte Schar,
In Trost und Frieden schwebet
Und außer aller Fahr.

Translation(s): DUT ENG

Kom, laat ons gaan flaneren

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

Kom, laat ons gaan flaneren
Door 't groen gekleurde bos!
De vogels musiceren
Er links en rechts op los.
Prijs hem die vrij kan zingen
Als jullie in 't geboomt',
En die zijn stem kan swingen
Tot hem, van wie hij droomt.
Prijs hem die vrij kan leven
Als jullie, lichte schaar,
Gerust en kalm kan zweven
En buiten elk gevaar.
