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.

Wandering
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 Come and briskly tramp to the unknown land!
 Severed, alas! severed is many a true pledge.
 You, my native shrines, where I often lay in prayer,
 You trees, ah, you hills - oh look at me and bless me!
 
 The wide world is still sleeping: not even a bird is awake in the grove,
 but I am not forsaken - but I am not alone,
 for, ah! upon my heart I wear her true pledge.
 I feel it, and in my mind Earth and Heaven are my close kin.
