English translation

Durchlauchtster Leopold,
Most Serene Leopold,
Es singet Anhalts Welt
Anhalt’s world sings
Von neuem mit Vergnügen,
Once more with happiness;
Dein Köthen sich dir stellt,
Your Cöthen presents itself
Um sich vor dir zu biegen,
To bow low before you,
Durchlauchtster Leopold!
Most Serene Leopold!
