Christbaum

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie schön geschmückt der festliche Raum!
Die Lichter funkeln am Weihnachtsbaum!
O fröhliche Zeit! o seliger Traum!

Die Mutter sitzt in der Kinder Kreis;
Nun schweiget alles auf ihr Geheiß:
Sie singet des Christkinds Lob und Preis.

Und rings, vom Weihnachtsbaum erhellt,
Ist schön in Bildern aufgestellt
Des heiligen Buches Palmenwelt.

Die Kinder schauen der Bilder Pracht,
Und haben wohl des Singen acht,
Das tönt so süß in der Weihenacht!

O glücklicher Kreis im festlichen Raum!
O goldne Lichter am Weihnachtsbaum!
O fröhliche Zeit! o seliger Traum!
