Awake are breezes soft and light,
They whisper and move by day and night,
Where'er they are gently stealing.
New scents and sounds in Spring we know,
Now, weary hearts, forget your woe.
Fresh life is all things filling.

The world grows fairer from day to day,
Where'er one looks, more bright and gay,
New beauty for us revealing.
Sweet flow'rets blow, sweet flow'rets blow,
Now, weary hearts, forget your woe.
Fresh life is all things filling.
Translation by John Troutbeck
