Immer sich rein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Immer sich rein
Kindlich erfreu'n,
    Selig, wer's kann.
Jubeln und singen,
Hüpfen und springen,
    Selig, wer's kann.
Lachen und scherzen
Mit fröhlichem Herzen,
    Selig, wer's kann.
Sorgen [zerstreu'n]1,
Gerne [verzeih'n]2,
    Selig, wer's kann.
Menschen beglücken,
Welch' ein Entzücken!
    Selig, wer's kann.
Böses nicht messen
Und Vieles vergessen,
    Selig, wer's kann.
