O Musica, du edle Kunst,
dir wird groß Lob gegeben;
dann du viel Lust und Kurzweil bringst,
erfrischt das traurig Leben.
Wo du hinkommst, da ist groß Freud
mit Tanzen, Singen und Springen;
bei dir wohnt selten Traurigkeit,
das Herz vor Freuden tut brinnen.
O Musica, du edle Kunst!

O Music, you noble art,
much praise is lavished upon you,
for you bring great pleasure and entertain us,
renewing our sorrowful lives.
Wherever you go, there is great joy
with dancing, singing and skipping.
Sadness rarely dwells with you,
our hearts are aflame with joy.
O music, you noble art!
