Vain worries of the future
Do not disturb our gentle sleep;
Ambition never defeated us.
With the unworried life,
that the Creator gave us,
we are peaceful and cheerful.

The glittering reflections
Of the mirrored waves
Silver the shore,
Pearl the beach.
The rushing rivers,
The gurgling springs,
Enrich, fertilize,
Pearl the beach.
And make in a thousand
Pleasing instances
The Goodness of the glorious
Creater known.

Sweet fragrant petals of the flower,
Your silver shall tempt me
to Him, who, to His glory, made you.
As you fall, I want to soar
Towards heaven, and sing to Him,
Who brought forth the world.

Sweet silence, soft springs
Peaceful calm!
The soul itself will be gladdened,
When I, after this time
Of laborious futility,
this peace I will see
that awaits us in eternity

Soul, sing praises to God,
who by such wise means
the whole world so gloriously adorned.
Who refreshes us through hearing,
who charms us through sight,
when He makes the tree and field bloom,
be praised, be glorified!

My soul 
hears by sight, 
how, in order 
to exalt the Creator, 
everything cheers, 
everything laughs.
Hear now, 
the blooming 
Spring's splendour 
is the language of nature, 
that distinctly 
through the face, 
speaks to 
us everywhere.

You who from dark tombs
dig up vain mammon,
see what you here in the air
have for treasures.
Speak not, it is only color and light,
one does not count it or shut it in chests.

In the pleasant bushes,
where light and shadow mix,
seek in silent pleasure
your eye and heart to refresh;
then lift out of your breast
my content feelings
and sing praise to the Creator's Goodness.

Flaming rose, ornament of the earth,
the gleaming garden's enchanting splendour!
Eyes, that see your excellence,
must admit, with astonished charm,
that a divine finger made you.
