Ich schau' über Forth hinüber nach Nord

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Scottish (Scots)

   Ich schau' über Forth hinüber nach Nord:
Was helfen mir Nord und Hochlands Schnee?
Was Osten und Süd, wo die Sonne glüht,
Das ferne Land und die wilde See?
 
   Aus Westen winkt, wo die Sonne sinkt,
Was mich im Schlummer und Traume beglückt;
Im Westen wohnt, der mir Liebe lohnt,
Mich und mein Kindlein an's Herz gedrückt!

Jo miro per sobre del Forth cap al nord

Language: Catalan (Català) after the German (Deutsch)

Jo miro per sobre del Forth cap al nord
Com m'ajuden el nord I la neu de la terra alta? 
El què l'est I el sud, on brilla el Sol,
La terra llunyana I el mar salvatge? 

A l'oest em fa senyals, on es pon el Sol,
El què a mi en el son lleuger I el somni em fa feliç;
A l'oest viu, qui em recompensa amb amor,
Qui apreta el seu cor a mi i el meu nen.
