“Sah ein Knab’ ein Röslein steh’n, Röslein auf der Heiden,
war so jung und morgenschön, wief er schnell es nah zu sehn,
sah’s mit vielen Freuden, Röslein, Röslein, Röslein rot, Röslein auf der Heiden.”

(A boy saw a little rose, a little rose on the meadow,
it was so young and beautiful, so he ran to have a close look,
and beheld it with great joy, little rose, little rose, little red rose, little rose on the meadow.)

Text is the first verse from a poem entitled “Heidenröslein” (Little Meadow Rose) written in 1773 by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and set to music in 1793 by Johann Reichart.
