Über allen Gipfeln

Language: German (Deutsch)

Über allen [Gipfeln]1

in allen Wipfeln
spürest du
kaum einen Hauch;
die Vögelein schweigen im Walde,
warte nur, balde
ruhest du auch!

Thuas i measc na mbeann ard

Language: Irish (Gaelic) after the German (Deutsch)

Thuas i measc na mbeann ard
Tá síth
I measc na gcrann ard
Níl aon ní
Ní chorraíonn dé;
Na héiníní balbh sa mhoing.
Fan go fóill, gan mhoill
Gheobhairse scíth.
