Gesegnet sei das Grün und wer es trägt!

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Gesegnet sei das Grün und wer es trägt!
Ein grünes Kleid will ich mir machen lassen.
Ein grünes Kleid trägt auch die Frühlingsaue, 
Grün kleidet sich der Liebling meiner Augen.
In Grün sich kleiden ist der Jäger Brauch,
Ein grünes Kleid trägt mein Geliebter auch;
Das Grün steht allen Dingen lieblich an,
Aus Grün wächst jede schöne Frucht heran.

Blessed be the color green and who wears it!

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

Blessed be the color green and who wears it!
I will make myself a green dress.
The spring meadow also wears a green dress.
The darling of my eyes dresses himself in green.
It is the hunter's custom to dress in green,
My loved one wears a green dress too.
All things are becoming charmingly in green,
Each lovely fruit grows from  green.
