Go, you skipping kids and fawns,
Exercise your swift career over pleasant fields and lawns,
Rousing up the fearful deer,
Greet them all with what I sing,
Endless love eternizing.

German.png German translation

Auf, ihr springenden Zicklein und Kitze,
Tut euren flinken Dienst über liebliche Felder und Wiesen,
das furchtsame Rotwild aufzuscheuchen,
grüßt sie all’ mit dem, was ich singe,
endlose Liebe, durch mein Lied unsterblich gemacht.
