Original text and translations

Selig, selig durch die Fluren gehn, wenn der Tag verglüht.
leuchtend in des Abends Schein, weiß der Birnbaum blüht,
selig, selig durch die Fluren gehen!

Hoch in Wipfeln feierlich, süß die Drossel singt;
wie der ganze Frühlingstraum, ach, im Liede klingt!
Selig, selig durch die Flure gehen!
