Leuchte, Laterne

Leuchte, Laterne
Text: Hans-Juergen Netz – Musik: Reinhard Horn

There are a few songs with the same name, so don’t go on the first version of this you find on the internet.  This is the version we sing.

 

 

Refrain:

Leuchte, Laterne
die die Sterne am Himmel
Leuchte die Erde mach hell!

Strophen:

Alle sehen
uns hier gehen.
Leuchte Laterne,
leuchte hell!

Alle hoeren
uns hier singen.
Leuchte Laterne,
leuchte hell!

Alle duerfen
Sich heut freuen.
Leuchte Laterne,
leuchte hell!

Alle koennen
mit uns staunen.
Leuchte Laterne,
leuchte hell!

Translation ….

Refrain (chorus):

Shine, lantern
like the stars in the heavens
Light up the earth.

Verses:

All [can] see
us walking here.
Shine, lantern,
Shine brightly.

All [can] hear
us singing here.
shine, lantern,
Shine brightly.

All [people] may
be happy today.
Shine, lantern,
Shine brightly.

All [people] can
wonder with us.
Shine, lantern,
Shine brightly.
