Wohlauf und [frisch]1 gewandert ins unbekannte Land!
Zerrissen, ach zerrissen, ist manches teure Band.
Ihr heimatlichen Kreuze, wo ich oft betend lag,
Ihr Bäume, ach, ihr Hügel, oh blickt mir segnend nach.

Noch schläft die weite Erde, kein Vogel weckt den Hain,
Doch bin ich nicht verlassen, doch bin ich nicht allein,
Denn, ach, auf meinem Herzen trag' ich ihr teures Band,
Ich fühl's, und Erd und Himmel sind innig mir verwandt.

Allons, et [dispos]1, parcourons des pays inconnus !
Bien des attaches chéries sont coupées, hélas coupées.
Vous croix de mon pays où j'ai souvent prié,
Vous arbres, vous collines, ô regardez-moi et bénissez-moi.

Le vaste monde dort encore, pas un oiseau du bois n'est éveillé,
Je ne suis pourtant pas abandonné, je ne suis pourtant pas seul,
Car, sur mon cœur, je porte vos chères attaches,
Je les sens, et la terre et le ciel me sont intimement liés.
