Tro
Language: Danish (Dansk) 
Available translation(s): FRE
De klamres indenfor Islam,
[De]1 kives i hver en Tro.
Verden er fuld af Sekter og Schismer --
Hvornaar vil [den]2 komme til Ro?

De taler, medens [der]2 strides,
Om alt det, hvorpaa de tror.
Det gælder at elske nogen
Paa denne kivagtige Jord !

Religion
Language: French (Français)  after the Danish (Dansk) 
On s'empoigne au dedans de l'Islam,
On se dispute dans chaque religion,
Le monde est plein de sectaires et de schismatiques
Quand atteindra-t-il le repos ?

On parle pendant qu'on se querelle
Sur tout ça, sur ce qu'on croit.
Cela équivaut à n'aimer personne
Sur cette terre querelleuse !
