Ich wollt zu Land ausreisen

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ich wollt zu Land ausreisen
Ich zog durch einen Wald
Ich hört' [in schönen Weisen]1
Die Vöglein jung und alt
[Den]2 Schöpfer lieblich loben.
Ich freute mich gar sehr,
Ich ward von ihn'n bewogen
[Zu preisen Gott]3 viel mehr.

Groß Freud' in meinem Herzen
Durch dieses ich empfand;
Gar bald verging mein Schmerzen
Und alles Leid verschwand.
Ich ging hindurch spazieren
Mit frischem freiem Mut,
Mit Sang und Jubilieren
Zu [ehr'n den]4 treuen Gott.
