Aus der Heimat hinter den Blitzen rot
Da kommen die Wolken her,
Aber Vater und Mutter sind lange tot,
Es kennt mich dort [keiner]1 mehr.

Wie bald, wie bald kommt die stille Zeit,
Da ruhe ich auch, und über mir
[Rauschet]2 die schöne Waldeinsamkeit,
Und keiner [mehr kennt mich auch]3 hier.

H. Eisler sets stanza 1
