Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA
Wohlauf und [frisch]1 gewandert ins unbekannte Land!
Zerrissen, ach zerrissen, ist manches teure Band.
Ihr heimatlichen Kreuze, wo ich oft betend lag,
Ihr Bäume, ach, ihr Hügel, oh blickt mir segnend nach.

Noch schläft die weite Erde, kein Vogel weckt den Hain,
Doch bin ich nicht verlassen, doch bin ich nicht allein,
Denn, ach, auf meinem Herzen trag' ich ihr teures Band,
Ich fühl's, und Erd und Himmel sind innig mir verwandt.

Het vertrek
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Kom op, nu fris vertrokken naar 't onbekende land!
Verbroken, ach verbroken is meen'ge sterke band.
Gij, kruisen langs de wegen, waar 'k vaak te bidden had,
Gij bomen, ach gij heuvels, volg zegenend mijn pad.
 
Nog slaapt de wijde aarde, geen vogel wekt het bos,
Toch ben ik niet verlaten, toch niet van allen los,
Want, och, hier op mijn lichaam draag ik haar dierb're band,
Ik voel 't, en aard' en hemel zijn innig mij verwant.
