Der Sonntag ist gekommen,
Ein Sträußchen auf dem Hut;
Sein Aug ist mild und heiter,
Er meint's mit allen gut.

Er steiget auf die Berge,
Er wandelt durch das Tal,
Er ladet zum Gebete
Die Menschen allzumal.

Und wie in schönen Kleidern
Nun pranget jung und alt,
Hat er für sie geschmücket
[Die Flur und auch den Wald]1.

Und wie er allen Freude
Und [Frieden]2 bringt und Ruh,
So [ruf auch du nun]3 jedem
["Gott grüß dich" freundlich zu.]4
