Glädjens blomster
Language: Swedish (Svenska) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Glädjens blomster i jordens mull,
  ack, visst aldrig gro!
Kärlek själv ju försåtlig är
  för ditt hjärtas ro.
Men där ovan, för hopp och tro,
  blomstra de evigt friska.
Hör du ei hur andar ljuvt
  om dem till hjärtat viska?

Les fleurs de la joie
Language: French (Français)  after the Swedish (Svenska) 
Les fleurs de la joie, hélas, ne poussent jamais
     dans l'humus de la terre!
L'amour même est vraiment perfide
     pour la sérénité de ton cœur.
Mais là-haut, pour l'espoir et la foi,
     elles fleurissent d'une fraîcheur éternelle.
N'entends-tu pas les esprits doucement
     autour d'elles chuchoter à ton cœur?
