Dem Königs‑Sohn

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wer sprenget auf dem stolzen Roß
Bis in die vorderen Reihen,
Und will dem Eisen, dem Geschoß
Das munt're Leben weih'n?
Das ist ein junger Königs-Sohn!
Der Erbe von dem Preussen-Thron! 

Du wirst uns lang im Ehrenfeld 
Mit Blick und Schwert regieren,
In späten Jahren, werter Held!
Ein frommes Scepter führen!
Du rascher lieber Königs-Sohn!
Wir retten Dir den deutschen Thron!
