Brüder, lasst uns lustig sein, 
trotzet wacker den Beschwerden, 
denkt, es ist der Fluch der Erden:
Jeder Mensch hat seine Pein. 
 
Lasst uns singen, lasst uns lachen,
kann mans doch nicht anders machen.
Welt und Not ist einerlei,
keiner bleibt von Plagen frei.

Ruhe sanft mein holdes Leben, 
schlafe, bis dein Glück erwacht;
da, mein Bild will ich dir geben,
schau, wie freundlich es dir lacht:
ihr süssen Träume, wiegt ihn ein,
und lasset seinem Wunsch am Ende
die wollustreichen Gegenstände
zu reifer Wirklichkeit gedeihn.
