So sei gegrüßt vieltausendmal

Language: German (Deutsch)

So sei gegrüßt vieltausendmal,
Holder Frühling!
Willkommen [hier]1 in unserm Tal, 
Holder Frühling!
Holder Frühling, überall! 
Grüßen wir dich froh mit Sang und Schall,
Mit Sang und Schall.

Du kommst, und froh ist alle Welt, 
Holder Frühling!
Es freut sich Wiese, Wald und Feld,
Holder Frühling!
Jubel tönt dir überall,
Dich begrüßet Lerch' und Nachtigall,
Und Nachtigall.

So sei gegrüßt viel tausendmal,
Holder Frühling!
O bleib recht lang in unserm Tal,
Holder Frühling!
Kehr in alle Herzen ein,
Laß doch alle mit uns fröhlich sein,
Ja fröhlich sein!

Kom, wees gegroet wel duizendmaal,
Mooie lente!
Wees welkom hier bij ons  in 't dal,
Mooie lente!
Mooie lente, overal
Groeten wij je blij met zanggeschal,
Met zanggeschal.
Jij komt, en blij is iedereen,
Mooie lente!
Verheugd zijn velden, bos en beemd,
Mooie lente!
Jou bejuub'len z' allemaal,
Leeuwerik zowel als nachtegaal,
Als nachtegaal.
Dus wees gegroet wel duizendmaal,
Mooie lente!
O, blijf heel lang bij ons in 't dal,
Mooie lente!
Ieders hart zij jouw domein,
Laar toch allen met ons vrolijk zijn,
[Ja]1 vrolijk zijn!
