Die Nebel zerreißen
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FIN FRE ITA
Die Nebel zerreißen,
[Der Himmel ist]1 helle
Und Aeolus löset
Das ängstliche Band. 
Es säuseln die Winde,
Es rührt sich der Schiffer. 
Geschwinde! Geschwinde! 
Es theilt sich die Welle,
Es naht sich die Ferne,
Schon seh' ich das Land!

Onnellinen matka
Language: Finnish (Suomi)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sumut hajoavat,
taivas on taas kirkas
ja Aiolos päästää
tuulet irti kahleistaan.
Ne suhisevat taas!
Liikkeellä ollaan.
Ja nopeasti!
Keula halkoo taas aaltoja,
mikä oli kaukana, lähestyy koko ajan;
nyt, nyt näen jo maata!
