Text Incipit see below
  • Part I.
  1. Tmy vrátily se v skrýše skal a lesů / The dusk departs to gloomy caves and forests
  2. Vesno smavá, Vesno snivá / Merry Springtime, dreamy Springtime
  3. 'Květy, jimiž Vesna vábí / Blossoms, with which Spring allures us
  4. Svaté jitro jest / Holy dawn and holy night
  5. Tříhav, který patří trojí tváří / Triglaw, thou with three-fold countenance
  6. Mé srdce chví se tlukem bouřným dnes / My heart is beating wildly
  7. Od dětství ku oltáři mne vodil svatý cit / When young it was the altar I ever held most dear
  8. Vždyť bozi s námi jsou, kam bludný krok se šine /
    The gods are close at hand, where´er we stray and falter
  9. Sem rychle Vesny květ, ať sochu ověnčíme /
    Festoon with flowers gay the statue of great Vesna
  10. Ký v pozadí to hluk? / What causes all that noise?
  11. Do prachu s vámi! Jeden jest Bůh! / Now kiss the dust all! One God there is!
  12. Kdo onen muž, jejž nestih's nebe blesk? / What man is this whom lightening will not fell?
  13. Ó dovol abych zlíbat směla tvých nohou prach /
    I beg thee, only thy dusty feet My lips I would lay
  14. Vstup v nitro své, mým domem není země /
    Upon this earth thy search would be a vain quest
  15. Vše láme se a bortí v chaos tmavý / Now everything is crumbling, all is chaos
  • Part II.
  1. Ó, v jaké šeré lesní stíny / Oh, in the fearful forest shadows
  2. Teď ptám se tě: co najít chceš? / Pray tell me now, what do you seek?
  3. Já neklamal se, buď vítána, dcero! / No error made, I welcome you, daughter!
  4. Ó dopřej, ať se v pokoře dál cvičím / Oh tell me, for humility I long now
  5. Tam Kristův kříž! / Behold Christ's Cross!
  6. Vesele hvozdem, vesele polem / Gaily we pass through field and through forest
  7. Ó jaký obraz oku mému se v stínu lesním otvírá! /
    Oh, what a sight there in the shadows, and one that causes me to fear!
  8. Já bludné duše světlu vracím / I led the lost souls out of darkness
  9. Ó neklamu se, chápu juž / I think, the truth I now infer
  10. Ach, ona, po níž srdce moje prahne / Ah, it is she for whom my heart is yearning
  11. Ó, cestu ukaž mi, jak jí mám dobýt / Oh, show to me the way that I must win her
  12. Ó, kterak mohu zvednout k tobě zraku / How is it possible to raise my eyelids
  13. Ó běda, nechce slyšet jeho lkání! / Oh, heavens! She'll not listen to his pleading!
  14. Jak z krásného snu náhle procitlý / I rudely awake from a perfect dream
  15. Já hledala jsem září toho jitra / For this new shining dawn I am now searching
  • Part III.
  1. Hospodine, pomiluj ny! / Mighty Lord, have mercy on us!
  2. Nuž přistupte, mnou víře vyučení / Come forward all to whom I've taught the new creed!
  3. Ó, nech juž skanout nad našimi čely / Anoint our foreheads with the holy water
  4. U cíle stojím snahy své a tužby / Here on the threshold of my aspirations
  5. Duchu svatý, sestup v nachu / Holy Ghost in royal purple
  6. Ó zněte, písně, zněte k nebes báni / Now let the heavens echo with our anthem
  7. Hospodine, pomiluj ny! / Mighty Lord, have mercy on us!
