Im Wald,
Im Wald
Ist Lust und Fried',
Da schallt,
Da hallt
Der Vöglein Lied.

Da klingt
Und springt
Manch' munt'rer Quell,
Und schlingt
Und ringt
Zum Thal sich hell.

Im Wald,
Im Wald
Voll Lust und Fried',
Da schallt
Und hallt
Erst recht das Lied.

Da klingt
Und springt
Der Dichtung Quell,
Und dringt
Beschwingt
Ins Leben hell.

K. Reinecke sets stanzas 1-3

In the forest
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
In the forest,
In the forest,
There is joy and peace,
There resounds,
There echoes
The song of the birds.

There rings out
And springs
Many a merry wellspring,
And loops
And wrestles
Its way to the valley brightly.

In the forest,
In the forest,
Full of joy and peace,
There resounds,
There echoes
Song [poetry] all the more.

There rings out
And springs
The wellspring of poetry,
And penetrates
Exhilarated
Brightly into life.
