Language: German (Deutsch)

Hört ihr im Laube des Regens starke Schläge?
Höret ihr brechen die Aest' im Sturmgefege?
Hört ihr doch drinnen der Vöglein süsse Kehlen
Preisend der Liebe des Herrn sich anempfehlen!
Seht ihr im Lande der Zwietracht Fackel lodern?
Hört ihr den Frevel das Recht zum Kampfe fodern?
Drum mit des Herzens Gewalt friedvoller Lieder
Zaubert das wilde Geschrei des Wahnsinns nieder!

En chantant !

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Entendez-vous la pluie frapper des coups dans le feuillage ?
Entendez-vous les branches se briser dans la tempête qui balaie ?
Entendez aussi dedans le doux chant des petits oiseaux
Se recommandant en louant à l'amour du Seigneur !

Voyez-vous dans la lande les flambeaux de la discorde flamboyer ?
Entendez-vous le droit exiger de combattre le mal ?
De même avec la force de vos chants pleins de paix de vos cœurs
Domptez par enchantement les cris sauvages de la folie.
