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!

La forêt est calme alentour
Language: French (Français)  after the Czech (Čeština) 
La forêt est calme alentour,
seul mon cœur dérange cette paix
et la fumée noire, qui descend rapidement,
sèche mes larmes sur mes joues.

Mais elle ne devrait pas les sécher,
il faut qu'elle frappe un autre visage.
Celui qui peut chanter dans la tristesse,
ne périt pas, il vit.
