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

wie 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

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.

Shine brightly.
