Livsranken bugter fyldig sig og frodig
Frem for jer Sans;
Haabets det rige Lys omslynger modig
Druernes Krans;
Farver i Live spiller under Løvet,
Hvilende Toner svulme frem til Lyd.
Grib det Alt og øv det!
Lev det og nyd!
Ungdommens Almagt syder jer i Aarens
Ilddrukne Kraft,
Længes at skabe og i Gjerning baaren
Skue sin Saft.
Spænd da jer Verdens dristigt brudte Buer,
Slyng da dens slanke Søjler imod Sky;
Fyld med Hjærtets Luer
Verden den ny!
