Wehe dem Fliehenden
Welt hinaus ziehenden! -
Fremde durchmessenden,
Heimath vergessenden,
Mutterhaus hassenden,
Freunde verlassenden
Folget kein Segen, ach!
Auf ihren Wegen nach!

Herze, das sehnende,
Auge, das thränende,
Sehnsucht, nie endende,
Heimwärts sich wendende!
Busen, der wallende,
Klage, verhallende,
Abendstern, blinkender,
Hoffnungslos sinkender!

Lüfte, Ihr säuselnden,
Wellen sanft kräuselnden,
Sonnenstrahl, eilender,
Nirgend verweilender:
Die mir mit Schmerze, ach!
Dies treue Herze brach, -
Grüßt von [dem]1 Fliehenden,
Welt hinaus ziehenden!

A la llunyania
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Ai del que fuig
vagarejant pel món! --
recorrent terres estrangeres,
oblidant la pàtria,
odiant la casa materna,
abandonant els amics,
cap venturança el segueix, ai!
en el seu camí.

Cor anhelant,
ulls plens de llàgrimes,
enyorança sense fi
envers la terra natal.
Cor convuls,
plany esmorteït,
l'estel del vespre resplendeix,
davallant sense esperança!

Ventijols mormolejants,
onades suaument encrespades,
raig de sol apressat
que enlloc s'atura:
a la que, amb dolor, ai!
trencà aquest cor fidel --
saluda-la de part del fugitiu
que vagareja pel món!
