Latin.png Latin text

Edite clari sona nova cantica voce Camoenae1
Quae referant laudes, clare Ficharde, tuas,
O vivas patriae decus et venerabile lumen,
O et pierii2 gloria viva chori.
Salve delitiae Musarum et splendida fama
Salve, et Meilandi vive Ficharde memor.

1: A Camena (Meiland mostly uses Camoena) is a Roman naiad (source nymph), connected with poetry.
2: Pieridae or Pieriae is another name for the muses, whence pierius = pertaining to the muses, poetic.

German.png German translation

Lasst erschallen mit der laut klingenden Stimme der Muse der Dichtkunst neue Gesänge,
die dein Lob mitteilen, berühmter Fichard,
Oh, mögest du hochleben, Zierde des Vaterlands und verehrungswürdiges Licht,
oh, und auch lebhafter Glanz des Dichterchors.
Sei gegrüßt, Freuden der Musen und glänzender Ruhm,
sei gegrüßt, und lebe und gedenke Meilands, Fichard.
