Text:
Arbeit ist des Bürgers Zierde, Segen ist der Mühe Preis;
Ehrt den König seine Würde, ehret uns der Hände Fleiß.

(Work is the citizen’s pride, blessings are the reward for toil;
honor the king his dignity, honor us the diligence of hands.)
Wenn Gott vom Himmel segnet das feld,
so backen wir grosses Brod um kleines Geld.

(When God from heaven blesses the field,
we bake great bread for little money.)

First text string is from a poem entitled “Das Lied von der Glocke” (The Song of the Bell), written in 1799 by Friedrich von Schiller and set to music by Max Bruch in 1879.
