I found a translation … I hope it’s close to correct!

By which map or star
can I point you safely through the wasteland?

Your deeds touch eternity;
Bestow meaning on those who have gone before,
Know that you are a lone fighter again, from the beginning;
And may the Southern Cross and Nine Stars forever outshine
The city lights in your soul.
