High German translation of the text:
Homeland, homeland, I love you as
much as a child is his mother, a puppy is its
master, like a child is its mother, a puppy is its master.
I ran through the valley, I lay on the hill
And your sun dried me after your rain had wet me.
At home is at home, if you don't have to go away, stay that way,
because home is more like the second womb.
In addition to these three stanzas, there are another five that are between the second and the third here. However, these are usually not sung to keep the song short.
