Jagdlied

Language: German (Deutsch) after the English

Auf, ihr Herrn und Damen schön!
Tag schon wird es auf den Höh'n,
Und die muntre Jagd ist da,
Falk und Hund und Pferd sind nah.
Hundgebell und Hörnerschall
Tönet laut schon überall,
Alles jubelt auf den Höh'n,
Auf ihr Herrn und Damen schön.
 
Auf, ihr Herrn und Damen schön!
Nebel schwindet af den See'n,
Und der Thau erglänzet hell.
Klarer rinnt des Baches Well,
Waidmann jagte durch die Flur,
Suchte schon des Wildes Spur,
Hört der Hörner rauh' Getön,
Auf, ihr Herrn und Damen schön!
 
Lauter schallt das Horngetön!
Auf, ihr Herrn und Damen schön,
Keine Jugendfreude weilt,
Rasch von dannen Alles eilt,
Wackrer Jäger ist die Zeit,
Nicht den Hirsch im Laufe scheut,
D'rum wie Tag graut auf den Höh'n,
Auf, ihr Herrn und Damen schön!

Jachtlied

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

Laat ons, dames, heren, gaan!
't Bergland ziet de zon al staan,
En de mont're jacht is daar,
Valk en hond en paard zijn klaar.
Hondgeblaf en hoorngeschal
Klinken luid al overal,
't Bergland geeft het hart vrij baan,
Laat ons, dames, heren, gaan!
 
Laat ons, dames, heren, gaan!
Mist verlaat de waterbaan
En de dauw glanst in de zon,
Klaarder stroomt de waterbron,
Jagers joegen door het veld,
Hebben wildspoor reeds gemeld.
Hoor 't gedreun der horens aan,
Laat ons, dames, heren, gaan!
 
 't Hoorngeschal zwelt luider aan!
Dames, heren, kom, we gaan,
Jeugdgenoegens blijven niet,
Alles vlucht, ja, alles vliedt,
'n Wakk're jager is de tijd,
Die met 't hert in snelheid strijdt,
Breekt dus dag in 't bergland aan,
Laat ons, dames, heren, gaan!
