Available translation(s): ENG FRE POR
Ihr Glocken von Marling, wie braust ihr so hell!
Ein wohliges Lauten, als sänge der Quell.
Ihr Glocken von Marling, ein heil'ger Gesang
Umwallet wie schützend den weltlichen Klang,
Nehmt mich in die Mitte der tönenden Flut -
Ihr Glocken von Marling, behütet mich gut!

Cloches de Marling
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Cloches de Marling, comme vous sonnez brillamment !
Un son plaisant comme si une source chantait.
Cloches de Marling, un chant sacré
Entoure et protège le fracs du monde.
Prenez-moi au milieu du flot de vos notes,
Cloches de Marling, protégez-moi bien !
