Wie froh und frisch mein Sinn sich hebt
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE ITA TUR
Wie froh und frisch mein Sinn sich hebt,
Zurück bleibt alles Bangen,
Die Brust mit neuem Mute strebt,
Erwacht ein neu Verlangen.

Die Sterne spiegeln sich im Meer,
Und golden glänzt die Flut.
Ich rannte taumelnd hin und her,
Und war nicht schlimm, nicht gut.

Doch niedergezogen
Sind Zweifel und wankender Sinn;
O tragt mich, ihr schaukelnden Wogen,
Zur längst ersehnten Heimat hin.

In lieber, dämmernder Ferne,
Dort rufen heimische Lieder,
Aus jeglichem Sterne
Blickt sie mit sanftem Auge nieder.

Ebne dich, du treue Welle,
Führe mich auf fernen Wegen
Zu der vielgeliebten Schwelle,
Endlich meinem Glück entgegen!

Vivace e lieto
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Giovane e lieto s'innalza il mio animo,
resta indietro ogni timore,
il petto anela con rinnovato coraggio,
un nuovo desiderio si risveglia
 
Si specchiano le stelle nel mare,
dorati scintillano i frutti.
Qua e là correvo barcollando,
e non ero né buono né cattivo.
 
Ma ormai superati
sono i dubbi e le esitazioni,
portatemi pure, onde cullanti,
verso la patria a lungo sognata.
 
Nella cara lontananza che imbruna,
sento il richiamo di canti conosciuti,
e da ogni stella
lei mi guarda con occhi dolcissimi.
 
Increspati dunque, onda fedele,
portami su strade lontane
fino al confine adorato,
finalmente verso la mia felicità!
