Über die Berge
Zieht ihr fort;
Kommt an manchen
Grünen Ort,
Muß zurücke
Ganz allein;
Lebet wohl!
Es muß so seyn.
Was man liebt,
Ach wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!
O Seenspiegel,
Wald und Hügel
Schwinden all';
Hör' verschwimmen
Eurer Stimmen
Lebt wohl! 
Klingt klagevoll. 
Ach wie wird
Das Herz betrübt!
Was man liebt.

Note: Schubert received Mayrhofer's texts generally in handwriting; the printed edition of Mayrhofer's poems appeared much later and presents the texts usually in a revised version. This version does not appear to exist in published form apart from Schubert's song.

Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Te ne vai via 
per i monti
In molti luoghi 
di verde ricoperti;
Debbo tornare 
tutto solo,
E' questo il mio destino.
chi si vuole bene,
Oh, al cuore porta 
tante pene!
Il lago limpido, 
il bosco, la collina 
sembra svanire;
E l'eco della tua voce 
sento scomparire.
Risuona un lamento,
Oh, al cuore porta 
tanto tormento,
lasciare chi si ama;
Come un lamento risuona.
