Mit Harmonien und ewigen Lohn und Frieden.

Les voies de la vie sont diverses
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Les voies de la vie sont diverses,
comme sont les chemins et les arêtes des montagnes.
Ce que nous sommes ici, un dieu peut l’accomplir là
dans l’harmonie et l’équitable paix éternelle.
