Lad os drikke - Poem by Knud Lyne Rahbek

Lad os drikke
Vinen, vi som kan!
Mangen Stakkel har den ikke,
men maa drikke Vand.

Værer glade!
Venner samles her!
Ynker den, som maa forlade
Hver, som har ham kjær.

Nyd hver Glæde,
før den svinder hen!
du for seent da maa begræde,
du miskjendte den.

Venskab sanker
os til Glæde her.
Bort med alle mørke Tanker!
Glæde Maalet er!

Ingen svige
dette ædle Maal!
For hver Broder og hans Pige
tømmes denne Skaal!
