Fliegt der Schnee mir in's Gesicht,
Schüttl' ich ihn herunter.
Wenn mein Herz im Busen spricht,
Sing' ich hell und munter.

Höre nicht, was es mir sagt,
Habe keine Ohren.
Fühle nicht, was es mir klagt,
Klagen ist für Thoren.

Lustig in die Welt hinein
Gegen Wind und Wetter!
Will kein Gott auf Erden sein,
Sind wir selber Götter.

Moed
Language: Frisian  after the German (Deutsch) 
Fljocht de snie mij yn 't gesicht;
'k wiskj' it fan de holle.
As it hert mij kweadens dicht't,
sjong ik blier en folle!

Ik hear net, wêr't  it oer praat, 
'k ha dêrfoar gjin earen;
ik klei net, al is it smaad,
kleien is foar healen.

Fleurich swalkje ik troch de wrâld,
sûnder gram en noaden! 
As gjin God ús dan behâldt,
binn' wysels as goaden.
