And we now live our lives in fear,
And faced with lethal weapons, Man
May see life here no more appear,
His future with misgivings scan.
Today we need you, Alice so
That Peace its aegis may restore,
And plenty smile, her blessings show,
And war and horror come no more.
And so, O sweet princess, this crown
Tonight upon your brow we give,
And praise as well, and fair renown,
The night will pass, may you long live!
