Über die Berge
Zieht ihr fort;
Kommt an manchen
Grünen Ort,
Muß zurücke
Ganz allein;
Lebet wohl!
Es muß so seyn.
Was man liebt,
Ach wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!
O Seenspiegel,
Wald und Hügel
Schwinden all';
Hör' verschwimmen
Eurer Stimmen
Lebt wohl! 
Klingt klagevoll. 
Ach wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!
Was man liebt.

The text shown is a variant of another text.
It is based on

Musical settings (art songs, Lieder, mélodies, (etc.), choral pieces, and other vocal works set to this text), listed by composer (not necessarily exhaustive)

Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Us en anireu per 
damunt les muntanyes
i arribareu 
a molts indrets 
plens de verdor;
jo haig de tornar tot sol,
Així ha de ser.
Dir adéu, 
allò que hom estima,
ai, com entristeix 
el cor!
Oh espill dels llacs, 
boscos i tossals, 
desapareixeu tots;
sento esmorteït l’eco 
de les vostres veus.
ressona planyívol,
ai, com entristeix el cor,
dir adéu, 
el que hom estima;
ressona planyívol.
