1. Jägerlied [sung text checked 1 time]

Zierlich ist des Vogels Tritt im Schnee,
Wenn er wandelt [auf]1 des Berges Höh':
[Zierlicher schreibt]2 Liebchens liebe Hand,
Schreibt ein Brieflein mir in ferne Land'.

In die Lüfte hoch ein Reiher steigt,
Dahin weder Pfeil noch Kugel [fleugt]3:
[Tausendmal]4 so hoch und so geschwind
Die Gedanken treuer Liebe sind.
