Ertöne Leyer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ertöne Leyer
Zur Festesfeyer!
Apollo steig hernieder,
Begeistre unsre Lieder!
Lange lebe unser Vater Franz!
Lange währe seiner Tage Chor!
Und im ewig schönen Flor
Blühe seines Lebens Kranz.

Wonnelachend umschwebe die Freude
Seines grünenden Glückes Lauf.
Immer getrennt vom trauernden Leide,
Nehm' ihn Elysiums Schatten auf.
Endlos wieder töne, holde Leyer,
Bringt des Jahres Raum die Zeit zurück,
Sanft und schön an dieser Festesfeyer
Ewig währe Vater Franzens Glück!

Que soni la lira

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Que soni la lira
per celebrar la festa!
Que Apol•lo davalli
per inspirar les nostres cançons!
Per molts anys al nostre pare Franz!
Que duri per molt temps la coral dels seus dies!
I que en un etern i formós ramell
floreixi la garlanda de la seva vida.

Que riallejant la joia envolti de goig
el verdejant curs de la seva sort.
Que apartat per sempre de penosos sofriments
les ombres de l’Elisi l’acullin.
Sona de nou, sense parar, lira encisadora,
retorna sempre en aquest temps de l’any,
dolç i formós, per celebrar aquesta festa,
que la felicitat del pare Franz duri per sempre!
