Nach diesen trüben Tagen

Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Nach diesen trüben Tagen,
Wie ist so hell das Feld!
Zerrißne Wolken tragen
Die Trauer aus der Welt.

Und Keim und Knospe mühet
Sich an das Licht hervor,
Und manche Blume blühet
Zum Himmel still empor.

Ja, auch so gar die Eichen
Und Reben werden grün!
O Herz, das sei dein Zeichen,
Werde froh und kühn!

De komst van de lente
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Na deze somb're dagen
Is 't licht nu opgegaan!
Verscheurde wolken dragen
De treurnis hier vandaan.
 
En kiem en knoppen groeien
Naar 't  licht toe, haast onaards,
En vele bloemen bloeien
In stilte hemelwaarts.
 
Ja, wijnstok zelfs en eiken
Zijn nu weer groen gekleurd!
O hart, dit wil bereiken:
Kom, wees opgebeurd!
