Mit dem Pfeil, dem Bogen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Mit dem Pfeil, dem Bogen,
Durch Gebirg' und Tal
Kommt der Schütz gezogen
Früh am Morgenstrahl.

Wie im Reich der Lüfte
König ist der Weih --
Durch Gebirg und Klüfte
Herrscht der Schütze frei.

Ihm gehört das Weite,
Was sein Pfeil erreicht,
Das ist seine Beute,
Was da kreucht und fleugt.
