Ihr fernen Heimathöhen, 
Du stilles, kleines Haus,
Du Berg, von dem ich gesehen
Jeden Frühling ins Land hinaus,
Mutter, Freunde und Brüder,
An die ich so oft gedacht,
Es/Ihr grüßt mich Alle(s) wieder
In stiller Mondesnacht.

O vaderland, o wouden
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
O vaderland, o wouden1,
Jij woning, stil, gering,
Jij berg, vanwaar ik aanschouwde
Elke lente die ’t land in ging,
Moeder, vrienden en magen,
Aan wie ik zo dikwijls dacht,
Het/Je2 komt zijn/je3 groet aandragen
In stille maanlichtnacht.
