Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Süßer, goldner Frühlingstag!
Inniges Entzücken!
Wenn mir je ein Lied gelang,
Sollt' es heut' nicht glücken?

Doch warum in dieser Zeit
An die Arbeit treten?
Frühling ist ein hohes Fest:
Laßt mich ruhn und beten!

Spring Festival
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Sweet, golden spring day!
 Heartfelt delight!
 If I were ever to attempt a song,
 should I not succeed today?
 
 Yet why at this time
 should I think of work?
 Spring is a high holiday:
 let me rest and pray!
