Original text and translations
Lovely Spring o'er earth is dawning,
Winter's icy fetters scorning,
Gushing streams and budding flowers,
Nature calls to deck her bow'rs.
Let the joyous heart then sing,
Of the hopeful, happy Spring,
Whisp'ring leaves and rippling fountains,
Valleys green and soaring mountains
'Neath the vernal transport waking,
Into songs of joy are breaking,
Shout for joy then beauteous earth,
Sing with man the glad new birth.
