We, the citizens of Germany, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of Germany and the world for many, many years to come. We will face challenges, we will confront hardships, but we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Paul von Hindenburg and First Lady Gertrud von Hindenburg for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent. Thank you.
