Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Der Wandrer, von der Heimat weit,
Wenn rings die Gründe schweigen,
Der Schiffer in Meereseinsamkeit,
Wenn die Stern aus den Fluten steigen:

Die beiden schauern und lesen
In stiller Nacht,
Was sie nicht gedacht,
Da es noch fröhlicher Tag gewesen.

Le voyageur loin de sa patrie
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le voyageur loin de sa patrie,
Quand autour les champs sont silencieux,
Le marin dans la solitude maritime,
Quand les étoiles émergent des flots,

Tous deux frissonnent et lisent
Dans le calme de la nuit
Ce qu'ils n'avaient pas soupçonné :
Encore une joyeuse journée s'est écoulée.
