Gaudeamus

Gaudeamus igitur
Juvenes dum sumus.
Post jucundam juventutem
Post molestam senectutem            
Nos habebit humus.
Let us rejoice therefore
While we are young.
After a pleasant youth
After a troublesome old age
The earth will have us.
Vivat academia!
Vivant professores!
Vivat membrum quodlibet
Vivant membra quaelibet
Semper sint in flore.
Long live the academy!
Long live the teachers!
Long live each male student!
Long live each female student!
May they always flourish!
Vivat et respublica
et qui illam regit.
Vivat nostra civitas,
Maecenatum caritas
Quae nos hic protegit.
Long live the State
And the One who rules it!
Long live our City
And the charity of benefactors
Which protects us here!

Vers. C. W. Kindeleben, 1781
