Dolça quietud, mansoia font
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Dolça quietud, mansoia font,
tranquil·la serenitat!
Fins i tot, l'ànima s'omple de goig,
aquí, en la teva dolçor,
després d'aquests moments
plens de penible vanitat,
contemplo aquella pau
que eternament ens és donada.
