German Text

Vers 5
In der Kindheit Jahren
unter Tanz und Spiel
habt ihr nicht erfahren
schon der Freuden viel?
Blumen, Spiel dem Knaben,
gab der Acker euch,
und, euch matt zu laben,
trug der Baum so reich.

English Translation

Verse 5
Did you not learn
many kinds of joy
dancing and playing
during the years of your youth?
The field gave you flowers
as a toy for you, the boy;
the tree bore fruit so richly
to refresh you when you were weary.
