Durch Einsamkeiten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Durch Einsamkeiten,
Durch waldwild Geheg,
Über nebelnde Weiten
Wandert mein Weg.

Fern über dem Berge
An ruhsamer Flut
Harrt meiner ein Ferge,
Der rudert mich gut.

An ein stilles Geländ',
Ewig gemieden
Und ewig ersehnt:
Zum Frieden...

Translation(s): CAT ENG FRE

Vers la paix

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

À travers des solitudes,
À travers des forêts sauvages,
Au-dessus de vastes nuées,
Mon chemin me menait.

Loin au-dessus des montagnes
Sur des eaux paisibles
Un nautonier m'attendait,
Il ramerait bien pour moi.

Vers une terre silencieuse,
Toujours évitée
Et toujours désirée -- --
   Vers la paix...
