O ye tender babes of England,
shake off slothfulness, set wantonness apart.
Apply your wits wholly to learning and virtue,
whereby you may do your duty to God and your King.
Make glad your parents, profit yourselves,
And much advance the commonweal of your country.

Ô vous, charmants bambins d’Angleterre,
défaites-vous de la paresse, tournez le dos au dévergondage.
Appliquez-vous de tout votre cœur à l’étude et à la vertu,
et vous accomplirez ainsi votre devoir envers Dieu et votre Roi.
Vous rendrez heureux vos parents, profiterez à vous-mêmes,

German.png German translation

O ihr zarte Kinder Englands,
schüttelt ab eure Trägheit, entsagt der Mutwilligkeit.
Widmet euren Geist der Gelehrsamkeit und Tugend,
so dass ihr eure Pflicht gegenüber Gott und eurem König tut.
Erfreut eure Eltern, dienet euch selbst,
und fördert das Gemeinwohl eures Landes.
