Des Tages Weihe
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Schicksalslenker, blicke nieder,
Auf ein dankerfülltes Herz,
Uns belebt die Freude wieder,
Fern entfloh'n ist jeder Schmerz.

Und das Leid, es ist vergessen,
Durch die Nebel strahlt der Glanz
Deiner Größe unermessen,
Wie aus hellem Sternenkranz.

Liebevoll nahmst du der Leiden
Herben Kelch von Vaters Mund,
Darum ward in Fern und Weiten
Deine höchste Milde kund.

Schicksalslenker, blicke nieder,
Auf ein dankerfülltes Herz.

La benedicció del dia
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Conductor del destí, esguarda cap avall,
a un cor ple d’agraïment,
l’alegria ens fa reviure,
lluny s’han enfugit tots els dolors.

I hem oblidat la pena,
a través de la boira brilla l’esplendor
de la teva incommensurable grandesa,
com d’una lluminosa corona d’estrelles.

Ple d’amor, llevares l’aspre copa
de l’aflicció dels llavis d’un pare,
i això féu conèixer pertot arreu
la teva suprema clemència.

Conductor del destí, esguarda cap avall,
a un cor ple d’agraïment.
