Es wollt' gut Jäger jagen

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

Es wollt' gut Jäger jagen,
wollt' jagen von Himmelshöhn;
was begegn't ihm auf der Heiden?
Maria, die Jungfrau schön.

Der Jäger, den ich meine,
der ist uns wohlbekannt,
er jagt mit einem Engel,
Gabriel ist er genannt.

Der Engel blies sein Hörnlein,
das laut' sich also wohl:
"Gegrüsst seist du, Maria,
du bist aller Gnaden voll!

Gegrüsst seist du, Maria,
du edle Jungfrau fein!
Dein Schoß soll hegen und tragen
ein Kindlein zart und klein.

Dein Schoß soll hegen und tragen
ein Kindlein zart und klein,
das Himmel und auch Erden
einmals wird nehmen ein".

Maria, die vielreine,
fiel nieder auf ihre Knie,
dann sie bat Gott von Himmel,
sein Will' geschehen soll.

Dein Will', der soll geschehen
ohn sonder Pein und Schmerz.
Da empfing sie Jesum Christum
in ihr jungfräulich Herz.

Il cacciatore

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Voleva cacciare il buon cacciatore
voleva cacciare dall'alto del cielo;
chi incontra nella landa?
Maria, la Vergine bella.

Il cacciatore, che intendo io,
ci è ben noto;
va a caccia con un angelo,
Gabriele è chiamato.

L'angelo soffiò nel suo cornetto,
che suona proprio così:
"Ave Maria,
piena di grazia!

Ave, Maria,
vergine nobile e gentile!
Il tuo grembo custodirà e porterà
un bimbetto tenero e piccino.

Il tuo grembo custodirà e porterà
un bimbetto tenero e piccino.
che cielo e terra
uniti accoglieranno".

Maria, la purissima,
si genuflesse,
poi pregò Dio dal cielo,
sia fatta la sua volontà.

La tua volontà, che deve compiersi
senza sofferenza e dolore.
Così ella accolse Gesù Cristo
nel suo virgineo cuore.
