Adieux à la France
Language: French (Français) 
Adieu, plaisant pays de France,
ô ma patrie
La plus chérie,
Qui as nourri ma jeune enfance ;
Adieu, France ! adieu, mes beaux jours !
La nef qui disjoint nos amours
N'a cy de moi que la moitié ;
Une part te reste, elle est tienne.
Je la fie à ton amitié
Pour que de l?autre il te souvienne.

Ich zieh' dahin!
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FIN
Ich zieh' dahin!
Ade, mein fröhlich Frankenland,
Wo ich die liebste Heimath fand,
Du meiner Kindheit Pflegerin.
Ade, du Land, du schöne Zeit --
Mich trennt das Boot vom Glück so weit!
Doch trägt's die Hälfte nur von mir:
Ein Theil für immer bleibet dein,
Mein fröhlich Land, der sage dir,
Des Andern eingedenk zu sein! --
