Aus der Heimat hinter den Blitzen rot
Da kommen die Wolken her,
Aber Vater und Mutter sind lange tot,
Es kennt mich dort [keiner]1 mehr.

Wie bald, wie bald kommt die stille Zeit,
Da ruhe ich auch, und über mir
[Rauschet]2 die schöne Waldeinsamkeit,
Und keiner [mehr kennt mich auch]3 hier.

H. Eisler sets stanza 1

De mi patria, tras el rojo del rayo
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the German (Deutsch) 
De mi patria, tras el rojo del rayo, 
de ahí vienen las nubes,
pero padre y madre hace tiempo que murieron.
Ya nadie me conoce allí.

¡Cuán pronto, cuán pronto llega el tiempo del descanso!
También yo reposo allí y sobre mí
susurra la hermosa soledad del bosque.
Y ya nadie me conoce aquí tampoco.
