Ueber allen [Gipfeln]1
Ist Ruh',
In allen Wipfeln
Spürest du
Kaum einen Hauch;
Die [Vögelein]2 schweigen im Walde.
Warte nur, balde
Ruhest du auch.

Der du [von dem Himmel]1 bist,
[Alles Leid]2 und Schmerzen [stillest]3,
Den, der doppelt elend ist,
Doppelt mit [Erquickung füllest]4,
Ach ich bin des Treibens müde!
[Was soll all der Schmerz und Lust?]5
Süßer Friede,
Komm, ach komm in meine Brust!
