Lust'ge Vögel in dem Wald

Language: German (Deutsch)

Lust'ge Vögel in dem Wald,
Singt, solang es grün,
Ach wer weiss, wie bald,
wie bald Alles muss verblühn! 

Sah ich's doch vom Berge einst
Glänzen überall,
Wusste kaum, warum du weinst,
Fromme Nachtigall. 

Und kaum ging ich über Land,
Frisch durch Lust und Not,
Wandelt' alles, und ich stand
Müd im Abendrot. 

Und die Lüfte wehen kalt,
Übers falbe Grün,
Vöglein,euer Abschied hallt
Könnt' ich mit euch ziehn!
