Nun bricht aus allen Zweigen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nun bricht aus [allen]1 Zweigen
Das [maienfrische Grün]2,
Die ersten Lerchen steigen
Die [ersten]3 Veilchen blüh'n;
Und golden liegen Tal und Höh'n --
O Welt, du bist so wunderschön
Im Maien!
Und wie die Knospen springen,
Da regt sich's allzumal;
Die [muntren]4 Vögel singen,
Die Quelle rauscht [in's]5 Tal;
Und freudig [schallt]6 das Lustgetön:
O Welt, du bist so wunderschön
Im Maien!
Wie sich die Bäume wiegen
Im lieben Sonnenschein!
Wie hoch die Vögel fliegen,
Ich möchte hinterdrein;
Möcht' jubeln über Tal und Höh'n:
O Welt, du bist so wunderschön,
Im Maien!
