So lohnet die Natur den Fleiß

Language: German (Deutsch)

 So lohnet die Natur den Fleiß.
 Ihn ruft, ihn lacht sie an; ihn muntert sie durch Hoffnung auf;
 ihm steht sie willig bei; ihm wirket sie mit voller Kraft.

Hanne, Lukas, Simon
 Von dir, o Fleiß, kommt alles Heil.
 Die Hütte, die uns schirmt, die Wolle, die uns deckt,
 die Speise, die uns nährt, ist deine Gab', ist dein Geschenk.
 O Fleiß! O edler Fleiß! Von dir kommt alles Heil.

 Du flößest Tugend ein, und rohe Sitten milderst du.

 Du wehrest Laster ab, und reinigest der Menschen Herz.

 Du stärkest Mut und Sinn zum Guten und zu jeder Pflicht.

Alle drei
 O Fleiß! O edler Fleiß! Von dir kommt alles Heil.

 O Fleiß! O edler Fleiß! Von dir kommt alles Heil.

Così la Natura ricompensa l'assiduo lavoro

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

 Così la natura ricompensa l'assiduo lavoro.
 Attraverso richiami e sorrisi; con la speranza che incoraggia;
 con generoso supporto; aiutando con tutta la sua forza. 

Vanna, Luca, Simone
 Da te, assiduo lavoro, viene ogni bene.
 La capVanna che ci protegge, la lana che ci copre,
 il cibo che ci nutre, sono tuoi doni, il tuo regalo.
 Oh lavoro! Oh nobile lavoro! Da te viene ogni bene.
 Tu ispiri la virtù, e ingentilisci i rozzi costumi. 

 Tu proteggi dai vizi, purifichi il cuore degli uomini. 

 Tu rafforzi il coraggio e il senso del bene e di ogni dovere. 

A tre.
 Oh lavoro! Oh nobile lavoro! Da te viene ogni bene.

 Oh lavoro! Oh nobile lavoro! Da te viene ogni bene.
