Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE
Wiederkehrend nach dem Vaterlande,
Hofft' ich deine Lilienhand zu drücken,
Traut're Bande
Würden uns, so hofft' ich, dann beglücken,
Wiederkehrend nach dem Vaterlande!

Wehe mir, du bist vorangegangen
Nach viel besser'm Vaterlande, [o Teure!]1
Welch Verlangen,
Daß auch ich bald meinen Nachen steu're
Nach viel besser'm Vaterland, o Teure!
