Wer in die Fremde will wandern,
Der muß mit der Liebsten gehn,
Es jubeln und lassen die andern
Den Fremden alleine stehn.

Was wisset ihr, [dunkele]1 Wipfel,
Von der alten, schönen Zeit?
Ach, die Heimat hinter den Gipfeln,
Wie liegt sie von hier so weit?

Am liebsten betracht' ich die Sterne,
Die schienen, wie ich ging zu ihr,
Die Nachtigall hör' ich so gerne,
Sie sang vor der Liebsten Tür.

Der Morgen, das ist meine Freude!
Da steig' ich in stiller Stund' 
Auf den höchsten Berg in die Weite,
Grüß dich, Deutschland, aus Herzensgrund!

Enyorança
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Qui vol viatjar a terra estrangera,
hi ha d'anar amb la seva estimada,
els altres s'alegren
i al foraster el deixen sol.

Què sabeu vosaltres, foscos brancams
dels bells temps antics?
Ai, la pàtria darrere els cims,
perquè és tan lluny d'aquí?

M'estimo més mirar les estrelles
que brillaven quan la vaig anar a trobar,
de bon grat escoltava el rossinyol
que cantava davant la porta de l'estimada.

El matí és la meva joia!
A aquesta hora tranquil·la pujo 
al cim més alt i, de la llunyania,
et saludo, Alemanya, de tot cor.
