A les je tichý kolem kol,
jen srdce mír ten ruší,
a černý kouř, jenž spěchá v dol,
mé slze v lících, mé slze suší.

Však nemusí jich usušit,
necht' v jiné tváře bije.
Kdo v smutku může zazpívat,
ten nezhynul, ten žije, ten žije!

Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
Available translation(s): CAT
Rings ist der Wald so stumm und still,
das Herz schlägt mir so bange;
der schwarze Rauch sinkt tiefer stets,
die Träne trocknend meiner Wange.

Doch meine Träne trockne nicht,
sollst anders wohin wehen!
Wer auch im Schmerz noch singen kann,
der lebt, nicht wird sein Lied vergehen!
