Hinaus in's Freie!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Wie blüht es im Tale,
Wie grünt's auf den Höh'n!
Und wie ist es doch im Freien,
Im Freien so schön!

Es ladet der Frühling,
Der Frühling uns ein;
Nach der Weidenflöte sollen
Wir springen zum Reih'n.

Wer wollte nicht tanzen
Dem Frühling zu lieb,
Der den schlimmen, langen Winter
Uns endlich vertrieb?

So kommet, so kommet
Ins Freie hinaus!
Wann die Abendglocke läutet,
Geht's wieder nach Haus.

Naar buiten, de vrije natuur in

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Hoe bloeien de dalen,
Zie hoog ook groene tooi!
Wat is het toch hier buiten,
Hier buiten nu mooi!
Nu nodigt de lente,
De lente ons uit,
Bij het wilgenfluitje moeten
Wij springen voluit.
Wie zou niet willen dansen
Voor de lente laat en vroeg,
Die de barre, lange winter
Nu eind'lijk verjoeg.
Dus kom nu, dus kom nu
Naar buiten toe, zeg!
Als de avondklok gaat luiden
Gaat ieder weer weg!
