Abschied der Auswanderer

Language: German (Deutsch)

Heimathland! Zum letzten Male
Grüßt dich unser Scheideblick.
Morgen mit dem ersten Strahle
Trennet uns schon das Geschick,
Denn wir eilen
Ohne Weilen
Übers Meer zum fernen Strand
Zu begründen
Dort ein neues Vaterland.

Lebewohl du theure Erde,
Welche uns das Leben gab,
Ach! an einem andern Herde
Suchen wir uns unser Grab.
Lass uns scheiden
Unsre Leiden
Nehmen wir mit über's Meer.
Doch die Ferne
Zeigt uns Sterne
Und vor uns zieht die Hoffnung her.
