Entflieh mit mir und sei mein Weib
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Entflieh mit mir und sei mein Weib,
Und ruh' an meinem Herzen aus;
[Fern in der Fremde]1 sei mein Herz
[Dein]2 Vaterland und Vaterhaus.

[Gehst du nicht mit, so sterb ich hier]3
Und du bist einsam und allein;
Und bleibst du auch im Vaterhaus,
Wirst doch wie in der Fremde sein.

B. Walter sets stanzas 1-2, 1

Fuig amb mi i sigues la meva dona
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Fuig amb mi i sigues la meva dona
i reposa al meu cor;
que lluny a l’estranger, el meu cor
sigui la teva pàtria i la teva casa paterna.

Si tu no fuges amb mi, aleshores jo moriré aquí
i tu et quedaràs tota sola;
i encara que romanguis a la casa del pare,
serà com si visquessis en terra estrangera.
