Beato quei che fido amor
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Beato quei che fido amor
Mai seppe meritar!
Ei solcherà senza timor
Di questa vita il mar.

Dovunque lo conduca il ciel,
Gli ride dolce fior;
La gioja non là cuopre un vel,
Si scema ogni dolor.

Ei sente l'alma divam par
Di generoso ardir;
Il vero ei puote sol amar,
Del bello sol gioir.

Felice chi ad un fido sen
Può cheto riposar,
E negl' occhietti del suo ben
Contento si specchiar!

Che in mezzo agli disa striancor
Quel sol gli riderà,
Ed a più bella calma oror
Tutto gli tornerà.

Das Glück der Freundschaft
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Der lebt ein Leben wonniglich,
Deß Herz ein Herz gewinnt;
Geteilte Lust verdoppelt sich,
Geteilter Gram zerrinnt.

Beblümte Wege wandelt ab,
Wem trauliches Geleit;
Den Arm die gold'ne Freundschaft gab
In dieser eh'rnen Zeit.

Sie weckt die Kraft und spornt den Mut
Zu schönen Taten nur,
Und nährt in uns die heil'ge Glut
Für Wahrheit und Natur.

Erreichet hat des Glückes Ziel,
Wer eine Freundin fand,
Mit der der Liebe Zartgefühl
Ihn inniglich verband.

Entzückt von ihr, ihr beigesellt,
Verschönert sich die Bahn;
Durch sie allein blüht ihm die Welt
Und Alles lacht ihn an.
