Original text and translations

German.png German text

Nun fanget an ein gut's Liedlein zu singen,
laßt Instrument' und Lauten auch erklingen.

Lieblich zu musizieren,
will sich jetztund gebühren,
drum schlagt und singt,
daß all's erklingt,
helft unser Fest auch zieren.

Esperanto.png Esperanto translation

Ekkantu kaj ekludu kanton bonan;
Liutoj kreu sonon plej belsonan.

La ĥoro kaj orĥestro,
Subtila muzikfesto.
Tambura bat’,
Plezura stat’,
Vi helpu per ĉeesto.

Translation by Roel Haveman

Come, let us sing a joyful song,
let instruments and lutes also resound.

Sweetly make music,
intended forever to be made,
the drum beats and sings,
that all's heard,
help us decorate our feast.

Translation by Moisés A. Bittner
