Teutoniam dudum belli, atra pericla molestant.
Omnibus o bona pax, gaudia mille ferat.
Laetentur cives patulo, gens omnis in orbe.
In patria dulci prosperitate nova.

Tota Slesis resonet, jam tota Bugordis,
tota Budorgis: gaudia mille ferat.

Turba novem filium nova cantica cantet,
Apollo aureolo resonum pectine pulset ebur,
exclamant passim Charites hominesque venusti:
Omnibus o bona pax, gaudia mille ferat.

Alternate Latin text

Adveniunt pascha pleno concelebranda triumpho.
Inclytus hic dies est, gaudia mille ferens.
Nunc totus gaudet populus, nunc bruta per orbem
In numerum ludunt luxurious novum.

Omne solum resonat, jam totus Olympus:
gaudia mille ferens.

Et chorus angelicus nova cantica cantet,
et ante aera non solito carmine mulcet ovans,
respondet passim juvenumque senumque caterva:
gaudia mille ferens.
