Die linden Lüfte sind erwacht

Language: German (Deutsch)

Die linden Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und weben Tag und Nacht,
Sie schaffen an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun, armes Herze, sey nicht bang!
Nun muß sich Alles, Alles wenden.

Die Welt wird schöner mit jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tieffste Thal.
Nun, armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich Alles, Alles wenden.

De milde winden naad’ren zacht

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

De milde winden naad’ren zacht,
Zij suizen en weven dag en nacht,
Doen leven wat eerst verdorde.
O frisse geur, o nieuwe klank!
Nu, arme ziel, wees vrij en frank,
Alles gaat anders, anders worden!
De wereld wordt mooier van dag tot dag,
Wie weet, wat hiervan nog komen mag,
De lente neemt alle horden.
Elk dal is nu in bloei gekleed:
Dus, arme ziel, vergeet je leed!
Alles gaat anders, anders worden!
