Original text and translations
How smile the heav'ns, so blue, so blue!
The radiant fields, how green!
My trembling vision tears bedew,
Earth has no lovelier scene.
From Winter's sleep awakes the Spring,
awakes from sleep anew,
And all her fulness, all her wealth,
the eye can scarcely view!
Like those, my heart, like those, my heart,
Essay to greet the breath divine.
See, all around, what gifts in store!
What cheering hopes, what bounties shine!
And let such hope, such blooming hope,
my grateful heart, be thine.
