Come back to J-D, my friend, dear friend
Come back again to the land of thy youth.

Come with flowers and springtime, my friend
and the old hilltop shall ring with our mirth.

Little we thought on those long winter days
of the hopes and dreams of these days.

Little we knew when we lent you to the wide world
over the mountain and over the vale.

Then come back to J-D, again and again
even if only in the mist of a dream

Come back to J-D, my friend, dear friend
for there will be sunshine there always.

O may the angels, waking and sleeping,
Watch over my friends in the land far away;

And so my prayers will consign to their keeping
Care of my jewels by night and by day.

When by the fireside I watch the bright embers,
Then all my heart flies to J-D and thee,

Wanting to know if my friends remember,
Or if their thoughts may sometimes be of me.

Then come back to J-D, again and again
even if only in the mist of a dream

Come back to J-D, my friend, dear friend
for there wil be sunshine there always.
