Still ist im Meer die Welle
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Still ist im Meer die Welle,
Alles giebt Muth dem Herzen,
lasst uns die Anker lichten,
die Fahrt wird glücklich sein.

Ihr lauen Weste füllet die Segel mildert 
das Tosen der der Tobenden Stürme
durch euer Fittige wonniges Fächeln
und Alles athme dann Freude und Scherz.
