Der Abschied des Freundes
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE ITA POR
Er stieg vom Pferd und reichte ihm den Trunk
Des Abschieds dar. Er fragte ihn, wohin
Er führe und auch warum es müßte sein.
Er sprach, seine Stimme war umflort: Du, mein Freund,
Mir war auf dieser Welt das Glück nicht hold!
Wohin ich geh? Ich geh, ich wandre in die Berge.
Ich suche Ruhe für mein einsam Herz.
Ich wandle nach der Heimat, meiner Stätte.
Ich werde niemals in die Ferne schweifen.
Still ist mein Herz und harret seiner Stunde!

Die liebe Erde allüberall
Blüht auf im Lenz und grünt
Aufs neu! Allüberall und ewig
Blauen licht die Fernen!
Ewig... ewig...

Discese da cavallo porgendo la bevanda
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Discese da cavallo porgendo la bevanda
Del congedo. Gli  chiese quale fosse la sua meta
E  perché doveva partire.
Parlò, e la sua voce era velata: Amico mio,
in questo mondo avversa mi è stata la sorte!
Dove vado? Io vado e m'incammino verso i monti.
A cercare pace per il mio cuore solitario.
Ritorno alla mia terra natale, la mia patria!
Non andrò più errando in paesi stranieri.
Tace il mio cuore e attende la sua ora!

La cara terra dappertutto
Fiorisce in primavera, di verde
Sempre si ricopre! Dappertutto e per sempre
Azzurro splende l'orizzonte!
Per sempre... per sempre ...
