How beautiful the snow!
Io! Io! Io! Io!
What purer than its whiteness?
What brighter than its brightness?
How beautiful the snow!

We love to see the snow!
Io! Io! Io!
While wintry winds are blowing,
How merrily ’tis snowing,
How beautiful the snow!

The sleighs now swiftly go!
Io! Io! Io!
The moon, so brightly shining,
The starry sky is climbing;
How beautiful the snow!
