Im Grünen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG
Im Grün erwacht der frische Mut,
wenn blau der Himmel blickt.
Im Grünen da geht alles gut,
was je das Herz bedrückt.

Was suchst' der Mauern engen Raum,
du thöricht Menschenkind?
Komm, fühl hier unter'm Grünen Baum,
wie süss die Lüfte sind.

Wie holde Kindlein spielt um dich
ihr Odem wunderlieb,
und nimmt all' deinen Gram mit sich,
du weisst nicht wo er blieb.
