Hoch in Lüften Vöglein fliegen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Hoch in Lüften Vöglein [fliegen]1,
Singen im klaren Himmelsblau,
Höher noch die Englein schweben,
Singen in Paradieses Au!
Vöglein! senket das Gefieder,
Setzet euch zu mir ins Gras,
Englein schwebet zu mir nieder,
Singet mir vom Himmel was!
