Wie herrlich leuchtet

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie herrlich leuchtet
Mir die Natur!
Wie glänzt die Sonne! 
Wie lacht die Flur!

Es dringen Blüten
Aus jedem Zweig
Und tausend Stimmen
Aus dem Gesträuch,

Und Freud und Wonne 
Aus jeder Brust.
O Erd', o Sonne!
O Glück, o Lust!

O Lieb', o Liebe! 
So golden schön,
Wie Morgenwolken 
Auf jenen Höhn!

Du segnest herrlich 
Das frische Feld,
Im Blütendampfe 
Die volle Welt.

O Mädchen, Mädchen, 
Wie lieb ich dich!
Wie blickt dein Auge, 
Wie liebst du mich!

So liebt die Lerche
Gesang und Luft,
Und Morgenblumen 
Den Himmelsduft,

Wie ich dich liebe
Mit warmen Blut,
Die du mir Jugend
Und Freud und Mut

Zu neuen Liedern
Und Tänzen gibst.
Sei ewig glücklich, 
Wie du mich liebst!
