I found this in one of the "supplements" 
(appendices) of Nikolao GUdskov's "Epitomo de 
Esperantologio" (Moscow: Impeto, 2002) and 
thought that some here might appreciate the 
Volapuk Hymn, written by one Fr. Zorell (and with 
music by Schleyer himself, but unfortunately 
that's not included). We'll see if the supersigns come through OK ...

Sumolsöd stäni blodäla
Dikodi valik hetobs
Tönöls jüli baladäla
Volapüke kosyubobs.
   Vokobsöz ko datuval:
   Menade bal püke bal!

Kis also kanos koblödön
Lölika vola meni?
Kis also kanos menodön
As pük bal omsa stadis?
   Kiu tonodozös in val:
   Menade bal, püke bal!

Daluvel püka lifömöd
Lifomsöd pakels ota,
Volapük aiflolomöd,
E volapüked oma!
   Oi binomöd su tal:
   Menade bal püki bal!
