Juchhe!

Language: German

Wie ist doch die Erde so schön, so schön!
Das wissen die Vögelein;
Sie heben ihr leicht Gefieder,
Und singen so fröhliche Lieder
In den blauen Himmel hinein.

Wie ist doch die Erde so schön, so schön!
Das wissen die Flüss' und [die]1 Seen;
Sie malen im klaren Spiegel
Die Gärten und Städt' und Hügel,
Und die Wolken, die drüber gehn!

Und Sänger und Maler [wissen's]2,
Und es wissen's viel andere Leut'!
Und [wer es]3 nicht malt, der singt es,
Und wer's nicht singt, dem klingt es
[In dem Herzen]4 vor lauter Freud'!
