Greift zum Becher und laßt das Schelten!
	Die Welt ist blind ...
Sie frägt, was die Menschen gelten,
Nicht, was sie sind.

Uns aber laßt zechen ... und krönen
	Mit Laubgewind
Die Stirnen, die noch dem Schönen
	Ergeben sind!

Und bei den Posaunenstößen,
	Die eitel Wind,
Laßt und lachen über Größen,
	Die keine sind!
