Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE
Süßer, goldner Frühlingstag!
Inniges Entzücken!
Wenn mir je ein Lied gelang,
Sollt' es heut' nicht glücken?

Doch warum in dieser Zeit
An die Arbeit treten?
Frühling ist ein hohes Fest:
Laßt mich ruhn und beten!

Fête du printemps
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Journée de printemps douce et dorée !
Profond ravissement !
Si je dois réussir une chanson
N'est‑ce pas pour aujourd'hui ?

Et pourtant pourquoi par ce temps
Se mettre au travail ?
Le printemps est une grande fête :
Laissez‑moi me reposer et prier.
