Wie lieblich schallt

Language: German (Deutsch)

  Wie lieblich [schallt]1
  Durch Busch und Wald
Des Waldhorns süßer Klang!
  Der Wiederhall
  Im Eichental
Hallt's nach so lang -- so lang!
  (Echo: So lang -- so lang!)

  Und jede Brust
  Fühlt neue Lust
Beim frohen Zwillingston;
  Es flieht der Schmerz
  Aus jedem Herz
Sogleich davon -- davon!
  (Echo: Davon -- davon!)

  Und jeder Baum
  Im weiten Raum
Dünkt uns wohl noch so grün;
  Es wallt der Quell
  Wohl noch so hell
Durch's Tal dahin -- dahin!
  (Echo: Dahin -- dahin!)

  Und die Natur
  Zeigt Gottes Spur --
Sey uns ein Heiligthum;
  Und Jedermann
  Bet’s an -- bet’ an --
Tief, erfurchtsvoll -- und stumm!
  (Echo: Und stumm -- und stumm!)
