Die [linden]1 Lüfte sind erwacht,
Sie säuseln und [weben]2 Tag und Nacht,
Sie [schaffen]3 an allen Enden.
O frischer Duft, o neuer Klang!
Nun armes Herze, sey nicht bang!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Die Welt wird schöner [mit]4 jedem Tag,
Man weiß nicht, was noch werden mag,
Das Blühen will nicht enden.
Es blüht das fernste, tiefste Thal.
Nun armes Herz, vergiß der Qual!
Nun muß sich Alles, [Alles]4 wenden.

Es desperten ventijols suaus
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Es desperten ventijols suaus,
xiuxiuegen i es belluguen dia i nit,
tresquen per tots costats.
Oh flaire frescal, oh ressò novell!
Ara, pobre cor, no tinguis por!
Ara tot, tot ha de canviar.

Cada dia, el món esdevé més formós,
no se sap el que pot esdevenir encara,
la florida no vol minvar;
floreix a la vall més profunda:
ara, pobre cor, oblida el teu turment!
Ara tot, tot ha de canviar.
