Welch wunderbare Pracht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Welch wunderbare Pracht
In grüner Waldesnacht,  
Hörst du von allen Zweigen
Sie musiziren
Und jubeliren. 

Des Jägers Horn schallt drein
Im kühlen Buchenhain,
So rauscht es durch das Dickicht
Die Thierlein da sich regen,
Die in der Ruh gelegen. 

Der Abendglocken Klang
Tönt her zum Waldgesang
Vom weit entleg'nen Dorfe,
Dann neigt sich bald die Sonne,
Mir ihr des Tages Wonne.  

Welch wunderbare Pracht
Hörst du in Waldesnacht, 
Dann noch von allen Zweigen 
Sie musiziren
Und jubeliren.
