Translation Singable translation by Sarah West Lander (1810 - 1872)

Tirolerlied
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Herrlich Tirolerlied,
sehnsucht- und lustdurchglüht!
Frisch, wie der Morgenwind,
kräftiges Alpenkind,
ziehst du mit Klang und Scherz
in das bewegte Herz,
dass deines Tons Gewalt
laut darin widerhallt.

Fern von der Städte Qual
schallst du vom Berg ins Tal,
einfach, im Hirtenkleid,
atmest du Fröhlichkeit.
Heiter durchströmt dein Blut
harmloser Übermut.
Bergstrom und Wiesenbach
ahmt dein Geplauder nach.

Dort, wo die Gemse springt,
dort, wo das Alphorn klingt,
dort, wo vom Sturm umweht
fest seine Hütte steht,
jauchzt deines Sängers Brust
Liebesgram, Liebeslust
frei über Berg und Kluft
aus in die deutsche Luft.

Tyrolese Song
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sweet sounds the Alpine song,
there love and joy belong,
where like the breezes wild
bold is the Alpine child.
Bounding with song and jest
deep in thy feeling breast,
that in the mountain strain
loudly resound again.

Far from the city's throng
echoes the mountain song,
clad in thy shepherd dress
true type of happiness.
Calm through thy veins may flow
pride in an honest glow,
while brook and mountain stream
sweet as thy music seem.

There where the chamois springs,
there, where the Alphorn rings,
there, by the stormwind fanned,
firm will the cottage stand.
Shout! Let thy song confess
love's sweet joy, love's distress
o'er gulf and mountain fair
shout to the wild free air!

From the Proch score.
