Original text and translations

English.png English text

Music, holy treasure,
Brightest ray of heaven,
Hope-inspiring pleasure,
Soul of gladness given;

Nature’s voice expressing,
Solemn, solemn, full, profound,
Or the ear caressing,
Softly, softly breathing sound;

Spirit of creation,
Life outliving time;
Joy of ev’ry nation,
Sun of ev’ry clime;

Ages bring devotion,
Rolling swift along;
Source of all emotion,
Live in endless song!
