�Es lebe was auf Erden stolziert in gr�ner Tracht,

(Long live he who struts on earth in green apparel,
the forests and the fields, the hunter and the hunt.)

St. Hubertus is the patron saint of hunters among French and German-speaking peoples of Europe. The crucifix between the antlers of a stag symbolizes the vision that appeared to him at the moment of his epiphany.

Text is from a poem written by Wilhelm M�ller in 1822 and set to music in 1823 by Konradin Kreutzer. The opening line makes reference to the F�rster (forest ranger) and his traditional green uniform (Trachtenanzug).
