The Sound of One's Mother-Tongue

Goethe, Iphigenia in Tauris 2.2.803-807 (tr. David Luke):
Oh sweetest voice! Thrice welcome music of
My mother-tongue here in a foreign land!
Now the blue mountains of my native shore
Appear before my captive eyes again,
Bringing new gladness.

O süße Stimme! Vielwillkommner Ton
Der Muttersprach in einem fremden Lande!
Des väterlichen Hafens blaue Berge
Seh ich Gefangner neu willkommen wieder
Vor meinen Augen.
