Part of a series or song cycle:

Vier Gesänge (Op. 2)

Schlafend trägt man mich [Der Glühende]

Schlafend trägt man mich
in mein Heimatland.
Ferne komm' ich her,
über Gipfel, über Schlünde,
über ein dunkles Meer
in mein Heimatland.

I am borne in sleep

I am borne in sleep
to my homeland.
I come from afar,
over peaks, over gorges,
over a dark sea
to my homeland.
