Hört doch! der sanften Flöten Chor
But listen! The soft flute choir
Erfreut die Brust, ergötzt das Ohr.
Delights the breast and dazzles the ear.
Der unzertrennten Eintracht Stärke
The strength of undivided concord
Macht diese nette Harmonie
Creates this lovely harmony
Und tut noch größre Wunderwerke,
And even greater miracles;
Dies merkt und stimmt doch auch wie sie!
Take note and be united as they are!
