Mit Harmonien und ewigen Lohn und Frieden.

Les lignes de la vie
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Les lignes de la vie sont différentes,
Comme sont les routes, et les sommets des montagnes.
Ce nous sommes ici, un dieu peut le compléter là
Avec harmonie et une récompense et une paix éternelles.
