Der Lenz ist gekommen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Lenz ist gekommen 
Ins harrende Land
Hat um sich genommen 
Sein Blumengewand,
Es schallt von den Zweigen
Der Vögel Gesang,
Nach Trauern und Schweigen
Ein grüßender Klang.
Da regt sich ein Sehnen, da blühet die Lust,
Heraus, du mein Lied, aus der klopfenden Brust! 

Es dränget zur Ferne,
Was frei und geschwind,
Es wandern die Sterne
Und Wasser und Wind.
Es wallen und weben
Die Wolken im Raum, -- 
Mit ihnen zu schweben,
Mein seligster Traum.
Ihr greifet den Blitz nicht am schmetternden Schaft.
Mich haltet ihr auch nicht in Fessel und Haft.

Ich habe getragen 
Den heimlichen Schmerz,
Nicht länger in Klagen
Vertröst' ich mein Herz.
Den Speer will ich schwingen 
Auf schnaubendem Pferd
Und singen und klingen 
Soll Harfe und Schwert.
Ich fahre wie Sturm, der die Eiche zerspellt,
Hinaus in die Freiheit, hinaus in die Welt!
