1. Der Jasminenstrauch [sung text not yet checked]

Grün ist der Jasminenstrauch
Abends eingeschlafen,
Als ihn mit des Morgens Hauch
[Sonnenlichter]1 trafen,
Ist er schneeweiß aufgewacht:
"Wie geschah mir in der Nacht?"
Seht, so geht es Bäumen,
Die im Frühling träumen.

2. Du bist wie eine Blume [sung text not yet checked]

Du bist wie eine Blume
[so hold und schön und rein;]1
ich schau' dich an, und Wehmut
schleicht mir ins Herz hinein.

Mir ist, als ob ich die Hände
aufs Haupt dir legen sollt',
[betend]2, daß [Gott dich]3 erhalte
[so rein und schön und hold.]1

3. Der Lenz [sung text not yet checked]

    Der Lenz ist angekommen!
Habt ihr es nicht vernommen?
Es sagen's euch die Vögelein,
Es sagen's euch die Blümelein:
Der Lenz ist angekommen!

    Ihr seht es an den Feldern,
Ihr [seht es an]1 den Wäldern;
Der Kukuk ruft, der Finke schlagt,
Es jubelt was sich froh bewegt:
Der Lenz ist angekommen!

    Hier, Blümlein auf der Haide,
Dort, Schäflein auf der Weide.
Ach! seht doch, wie sich Alles freut.
Es hat die Welt sich schön [verneut]1.
Der Lenz ist angekommen.
