Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Aus Wolken [kommt]1 die frohe Stunde,
O Mensch, gesunde!
Lass Leiden [seyn]2 und Bangigkeit,
Wenn Liebchens Kuss dein Herz erfreut.
 
In Küssen weht ein Zaubersegen,
Drum sey verwegen,
Was [schadet's]3, wenn der Donner rollt,
Wenn nur der rothe Mund nicht schmollt.

Courage
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Des nuages vient l'heure joyeuse,
Homme, porte-toi bien,
Que la souffrance et la crainte s'envolent,
Quand un baiser de la bien-aimée réjouit le cœur !

Dans les baisers souffle une bénédiction magique,
Aussi sois audacieux,
Pourquoi avoir peur, quand le tonnerre roule,
Tant que les lèvres roses ne font pas la moue.
