Kdo v zlaté struny zahrát zná

Language: Czech (Čeština)

Kdo v zlaté struny zahrát zná,
jej ctěte víc než sebe,
neboť vás tak bůh miloval,
že poslal vám ho s nebe.

Hrozné, když bůh neourodou
a morem trestá přísně;
však ze všech trestů největší,
když národ nemá písně.

Ten národ ještě nezhynul,
dokud mu věštec zpívá,
a píseň v nebi zrozená
i ve smrt život vlívá.
