Heroum soboles, amor orbis, Carole, nostri
solus es afflicto Musarum tempore alumnos
qui colis et facili largiris munera dextra.

Propterea celebrat Musica diva libenter;
laudibus et meritis ad sidera tollere gestit.
Vive diu Austriacae spes optima maxima gentis.

English.png English translation

Descendant of heroes, love of the world, Charles,
you alone nurture the pupils of the Muses in their distress
and give gifts with a ready right hand;

Thence the goddess Music celebrates you freely;
with praises and rewards she longs to raise you to the stars.
Long live, O greatest and best hope of the Austrian people.

Translation by Campelli

Nachkomme von Helden, Liebreiz unserer Welt, Karl,
du bist der einzige, der in Zeiten der Bedrängnis die Schüler der Musen unterstützt
und ihnen mit freigiebiger Hand Gaben reichst;

deshalb feiert dich die göttliche Musik mit Freuden
und freut sich, dich mit verdientem Loblied zu den Sternen zu erheben.
Lebe lang, du größte und beste Hoffnung des österreichischen Volks.
