Du bist Orplid, mein Land!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist Orplid, mein Land!
Das ferne leuchtet;
Vom Meere dampfet dein besonnter Strand
Den Nebel, so der Götter Wange feuchtet.

Uralte Wasser steigen
Verjüngt um deine Hüften, Kind!
Vor deiner Gottheit beugen 
Sich Könige, die deine Wärter sind.

Le chant de Weyla

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

O Orplid, c'est toi mon pays !
toi qui miroites au loin ; 
sur ton rivage ensoleillé s'exhale une brume de mer
qui rend humides les joues des dieux.

Rajeunies, les eaux immémoriales
enserrent tes hanches, mon enfant !
Devant ta divinité les rois s'inclinent :
ils sont tes protecteurs.
