In diesen Wintertagen,
Nun sich das Licht verhüllt,
Laß uns im Herzen tragen,
Einander traulich sagen,
Was uns mit innerm Licht erfüllt.

Was milde Glut entzündet,
Soll brennen fort und fort,
Was Seelen zart verbündet,
Und Geisterbrücken gründet,
Sei unser leises Losungswort.

Das Rad der Zeit mag rollen,
Wir greifen kaum hinein,
Dem Schein der Welt verschollen,
Auf unserm Eiland wollen
Wir Tag und Nacht der sel'gen Liebe weih'n.

En aquests dies d’hivern
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
En aquests dies d’hivern,
ara que la llum s’envela,
portem als nostres cors
i diguem-nos amb franquesa
allò que ens omple d’una llum interior.

Allò que encén un dolç caliu
ha de seguir cremant sense parar,
allò que delicadament uneix les ànimes
i crea ponts entre els esperits,
ha de ser la nostra silent consigna.

La roda del temps pot girar
però a penes la podem intervenir,
apartats de les aparences del món,
a la nostra illa, volem consagrar-nos
dia i nit al nostre benaurat amor.
