Ihr Vögelein, so zart und fein,
was singet ihr zum Morgen mir?
"Wir singen dir von uns'rer Zier,
vom Sangesschall der Nachtigall;
vom kühlen Hain, vom Quell so rein,
vom Blümlein blau auf grünen Au,
auch singen wir von Nächten dir,
wie da sieh's ruht in Liebesgluth 
und wie es sei dem Vöglein frei
in reiner Luft und süssem Duft."
Dank, Vögelein, so zart und fein,
schön singet ihr zum Morgen mir.
