Lilla an die Morgenröte
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Wie schön bist du, du güldne Morgenröte,
Wie feierlich bist du!
Dir jauchzt in festlichen Gesang der Flöte
Der Schäfer dankbar zu.

Dich grüßt des Waldes Chor, melodisch singet
Die Lerch' und Nachtigall,
Und rings umher [vom Feld und Wald]1 erklinget
Der Freude Widerhall.

Lilla tot het morgenrood
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Hoe mooi ben jij, jij morgenrood goudkleurig,
Hoe imposant ben jij!
De herdersfluit blaast feestelijk en fleurig
Voor jou een zangpartij.

Jou groet het koor van 't woud, hoe heerlijk zingen
Leeuw'rik en nachtegaal.
En vol van vreugd langs berg en dalen swingen
De echo's allemaal.
