Original text and translations
1 The stars are with the voyager,
Wherever he may sail,
The moon is constant to her time,
The sun will never fail;
But follow, follow, round the world
The green earth and the sea,
So love is with the lover's heart,
Wherever he may be.
2 Wherever he may be the stars
Must daily lose their light,
The moon will veil her in the shade,
The sun will set at night,
The sun may set but constant love
Will shine when he's away,
So that dull night is never night,
And day is brighter day.
