Finstere Schatten der Nacht
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Persian (Farsi) 
Available translation(s): AFR CAT DUT ENG ENG FIN FRE ITA
Finstere Schatten der Nacht,
Wogen- und Wirbelgefahr!
Sind wohl, die da gelind
rasten auf sicherem Lande,
euch zu begreifen im Stande?
Das ist der nur allein,
welcher auf wilder See
stürmischer Öde treibt,
Meilen entfernt vom Strande.

Yön synkät varjot
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Yön synkät varjot, 
vaaralliset aallot ja pyörteet!
Eivät kai ne, jotka kaikessa rauhassa
lepäilevät turvassa maan kamaralla,
koskaan pysty niitä ymmärtämään?

Siihen pystyy voi vain se,
joka aavalla merellä
yksin keskellä myrskyä ajelehtii
mailien päässä rannalta.
