Jedes [Spätzlein]1
Hat sein [Plätzlein]2,
Wo es zwitschert, pickt und ruht.

Jedes Kindlein
Hat ein Mündlein
Und das Mündlein geht ihm gut.

Jedes Jährchen
Kommt ein Stärchen,
Bringt den Frühling neu ins Land.

Jedes Kindlein
Hat ein Stündlein,
Wo es neue Freude fand.

Jedes Täubchen
Trägt ein Häubchen
Um das Köpflein fein und rund.

Liebe Kindlein,
Ihr seit meine gute Stund.
