Jägerchor

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie lebt sich's so fröhlich im Grünen,
im Grünen bei fröhlicher Jagd,
von sonnigen Strahlen durchschienen,
wo reizend die Beute uns lacht.

Wir lauschen, und nicht ist's vergebens,
wir lauschen im duftenden Klee.
O sehet das Ziel unsres Strebens:
ein schlankes, ein flüchtiges Reh.

Getroffen bald sinkt es vom Pfeile,
doch Liebe verletzt, dass sie heile,
nicht bebe, du schüchternes Reh,
die Liebe gibt Wonne für Weh.
