Ô joie de mon âme,
Joie de mon coeur,
Trésor qui m'est si cher ;
Joie de l'âme et du cœur,
Toi que j'aime ardemment,
Tu es plus beau qu'un ange.
Ô lorsque tu parais,
Ange si doux
Devant nos yeux,
Comme un bel ange blond,
Sous le clair soleil,
Hélas ! tous nos pauvres cœurs soupirent !

Das Lied der Mastix ‑ Sammlerinnen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
O Freude meiner Seele,
Freude meines Herzens,
Ein Schatz, der mir so lieb und teuer ist;
Freude der Seele und des Herzens,
Du, den ich sehnlichst liebe,
Du bist schöner als ein Engel.
O, wenn du erscheinst,
Engel so süß,
Vor unseren Augen,
Wie ein schöner blonder Engel,
Unter der klaren Sonne,
Ach! dann seufzen alle unsere armen Herzen!
