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!

Ver over de Forth, kijk ik uit naar...

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Ver over de Forth, kijk ik uit naar Noord:
Maar Hoogland en Noord, wat heb 'k er mee?
En Oost dan wel Zuid, och, wat maakt het uit,
Het verre land en de wilde zee?
 
In 't Westen wenkt waar mijn hart aan denkt,
Wat mij al slapend en dromend verrukt;
In 't Westen woont die mijn liefde beloont,
Mij en mijn kindje aan 't harte drukt.

Translation of title "Im Westen" and "In Westen" = "In 't Westen"
Deze bewerking grijpt ten dele terug op het origineel van Burns. Met name de verwijzingen naar sneeuw en zon zijn door Gerhard zelf bedacht.
