O Sommerfrühe blau und hold!

Language: German (Deutsch)

O Sommerfrühe [blau]1 und hold!
Es trieft der Wald von Sonnengold,
In Blumen steht die Wiese;
Die Rosen blühen rot und weiß
Und durch die Felder wandelt leis'
Ein Hauch vom Paradiese.

Die ganze Welt ist Glanz und Freud,
Und bist du jung, so liebe heut
Und Rosen brich mit Wonnen!
Und wardst du alt, vergiß der Pein
Und lerne dich am Wiederschein
Des Glücks der Jugendsonnen.

Summer song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

O summer morning, fair and blue!
Gold sunlight shines the forest through,
The blooms on mead revealing;
The roses blossom red and white
And o'er the fields a breath of light
From Paradise is stealing.

The whole wide world is bright and gay,
And art thou young, then love today
And roses gather lightly!
And wert thou old, then sadness spurn,
And sun thyself in gladness learn
That from the young beam[s] brightly.


From a Marx score.
