Hør Spurven derude

Hans Christian Andersen 1805 (Odense) – 1875 (Copenhagen)

Hør Spurven derude,
Den sang ved Rude:
Kom ud I Smaa!
Kom ud dog af Skolen,
Klart skinner Solen,
Lege I maa!
Snart paa Foden, snart paa Knæet,
Ja paa Hovedet selv vi staae;
Vi med Spurven fløi fra Træet,
Havde vi bare Vinger paa.
 
Hvor kan det dog være,
Ikke vi bære
Vingerne smaae?
Men naar vi er fromme
Kan De vel komme?
Bare de maa!
Da vi flyve vil over Byen,
Flyve langt der i Verden ud,
Flyve høiere op end Skyen,
Op til Himmelen og Gud!
