Verschneit liegt rings die ganze Welt,
Ich hab' Nichts, was mich freuet,
Verlassen steht der Baum im Feld,
Hat längst sein Laub verstreuet.

Der Wind nur geht bei stiller Nacht
Und rüttelt an den Baume,
Da rührt er seinen Wipfel sacht
Und redet wie im Traume.

Er träumt von künft'ger Frühlingszeit,
Von Grün und Quellenrauschen,
Wo er im neuen Blüten-Kleid
Zu Gottes Lob wird rauschen.
