1)
Where between Emsbach and the Lahn a pleasant village leit,
spended we when we were small a goldy teenage-zeit
Our parents’ home so love and fine who likes that to entbehrn?
That have our parents here gebuild, that we here lucky wärn:

Refrain:
Eschhowe, Eschhowe, my village on the Lahn,
Here is our hohome, here are we deham!

2)
Where deep in the village the Börnche flows, so bright and clear and rein,
There are the people of good hope, that cannot others sein.
From (the) Kippel up to Schwingelsmountain, there is the air gesund,
That’s why here grow such goog fellows, who sing from Herzensgrund:

Refrain:
Eschhowe, Eschhowe, my village on the Lahn,
Here is our hohome, here are we deham!

3)
When we’ve been little children once – driving in the Schees,
The old aged people had been for us “a Vetter and a Wees”.
The Hulmet and the Ebenaa, that was us soon bekannt,
Is complete our countryside, is our Heimatland.

Refrain:
Eschhowe, Eschhowe, my village on the Lahn,
Here is our hohome, here are we deham!
4)
Sleighriding in the deeeep snow of Weiss-Stawegsbuh,
Crashing into Duchschersch’s wire, there still was everything dru.
Sometimes creeping through the Unnerhöhl up to the Lännebank,
Remembering back this today,my heart gets fully krank.

Refrain:
Eschhowe, Eschhowe, my village on the Lahn,
Here is our hohome, here are we deham!

5
When we were taller later on, aged 17, 18 Johrn,
Occasionally looking out for a guy, the heart was quickly verlorn.
The guy must be a Schowen-one, no one else comes in Froo,
Because only here they are faithful and honest as nowhere others wo.

Refrain:
Eschhowe, Eschhowe, my village on the Lahn,
Here is our hohome, here are we deham!

6)
When I’ve to leave once far away, on my Lebensbahn,
Then still remains deep in my heart, my village on the Lahn.
My sweet home I’ll return to you – eyery year ofs neu,
My greeting applies to you (at) every hour, I stay you forever treu!
