Im kühlen Schatten, auf sonnigen Höh'n

Language: German (Deutsch)

Im kühlen Schatten, auf sonnigen Höh'n
Wie blüht ihr Blümlein so wunderschön!
Euch hat ein Engel so reicht bemalt,
Dass ihr in Farben des Himmels strahlt.

O lasst euch pflücken, die Sonne glüht;
Ihr seid am Abend [ja]1 doch verblüht.
[Der kranken Mutter bring ich den Strauß,
Trag ihr den Frühling ins stille Haus.]2

[Im kühlen Schatten, auf [sonnigen]3 Höhn,
Wie blüht ihr Blümlein so wunderschön!]1
Nun freu dich wieder, mein Mütterlein,
Dich heilen Blumen und Sonnenschein!
