Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Giovan Giacomo et Carlo,
Spirti felici et rari,
Di generoso ardir, di virtù pari,
Di vostri merti al segno
Non gionge stil di pelegrino ingegno
Né’l mio sì roco canto
Può darvi pregio o vanto.
Pur consacro Chisel al vostr’honore
Lo stil e’l canto e’l core.

German.png German translation

Johann Jakob und Karl,
glückliche und kostbare Geister,
von eurem Edelmut, ebenso den Tugenden,
von euren außerordentlichen Verdiensten
kann kein Stil von rarer Eingebung
noch mein rauhes Lied
euch Preis und Ruhm darbringen.
So widme ich, Khisl, eurer Ehre
Schreibart, Gesang und Herz.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

John Jacob and Charles,
happy and valuable spirits,
of your gallantry, the virtues too,
of your extraordinary merits
no style even of rare inspiration
nor my hoarse song
can deliver esteem or renown.
So I consecrate, Khisl, to your honour
the style, the song and the heart.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
