chorique Magistra,
laetificare solum nata, beare polum:

vivat io sumo Musica grata Deo.

Musik, Schwester der Musen, Lehrmeisterin des Tanzes,
geboren, die Erde fröhlich zu machen
und den Himmel zu beglücken:

Es lebe die Musik, die den menschlichen Geistes erfreut!
Es lebe die Musik, die Gott lieb ist!
