Freunde, weihet den Pokal 
Jener fremden Menschenwelt,
Die an gleichem Sonnenstrahl 
Sich erhellt, gesellt, gefällt;
Glück den lieben unbekannten
Lichtgesandten Herzverwandten,
Deren Augen [übergehen]1,
Wenn sie in die Sonne [sehen]2. --

De bokaal
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Vrienden, wijdt nu de bokaal
Aan die vreemde mensensoort,
Die door ‘tzelfde zongestraal
Wordt verlicht, vereend, bekoord;
Heil de lieve onbekende,
Lichtgezonden vriendenbende,
In wier oog ontstaat een bron,
Als zij kijken in de zon.
