Das Glück der Freundschaft

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Der lebt ein Leben wonniglich,
Deß Herz ein Herz gewinnt;
Geteilte Lust verdoppelt sich,
Geteilter Gram zerrinnt.

Beblümte Wege wandelt ab,
Wem trauliches Geleit;
Den Arm die gold'ne Freundschaft gab
In dieser eh'rnen Zeit.

Sie weckt die Kraft und spornt den Mut
Zu schönen Taten nur,
Und nährt in uns die heil'ge Glut
Für Wahrheit und Natur.

Erreichet hat des Glückes Ziel,
Wer eine Freundin fand,
Mit der der Liebe Zartgefühl
Ihn inniglich verband.

Entzückt von ihr, ihr beigesellt,
Verschönert sich die Bahn;
Durch sie allein blüht ihm die Welt
Und Alles lacht ihn an.

La joie de l'amitié

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

Il vit une vie merveilleuse
Celui dont le cœur gagne un cœur ;
Le plaisir partagé est doublé,
Le chagrin partagé s'évanouit.

Les chemins sont bordés de fleurs
Pour ceux qui ont un compagnon agréable ;
L'amitié dorée donne son bras
Quand arrive le temps du bronze.

Elle réveille la force et suscite le courage
Seulement pour de bonnes actions,
Et nourrit en nous une ardeur sacrée
Pour la vérité et la nature.

Il a atteint le but du bonheur
Celui qui a trouvé une amie,
Avec qui le tendre sentiment d'amour
Les a unis dans le cœur.

Enchanté par elle, attaché à elle,
Sa voie est embellie ;
Car à travers elle le monde est en fleurs pour lui
Et tous lui sourient.
