我已经请了假 弟兄们，祝我一路平安 我向你们大家鞠躬好 然后就启程。 我把我门上的钥匙交还—— 我把房子的所有权都放弃 只请求你们最后几句善意的好话。 我们做过很久的邻居 但我从来接受馈赠给予的少 现在天已破晓 我黑暗屋角的灯光已灭 召命已来， 我就准备启行了。
I have got my leave. Bid me farewell, my brothers! I bow to you all and take my departure. Here I give back the keys of my door — and I give up all claims to my house. I only ask for last kind words from you. We were neighbours for long, but I received more than I could give. Now the day has dawned and the lamp that lit my dark corner is out. A summons has come and I am ready for my journey.
