Die Sonne schied.
Fern aus den Zweigen
Der Amsel Lied,
Sonst tiefes Schweigen.
Schon ruht Natur
Ringsum im Traume.
Ein Reh zieht nur
Am Waldessaume.
O heil’ger Abend,
O sel’ge Stunde,
Kummer begrabend,
Heilend den Wunden,
Stillend den Schmerz.
Wie schön hienieden!
Athme mein Herz
Nur Frieden, Frieden!

June evening

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

The sun departed.
Far from out the branches
The song of the thrush,
Otherwise deep silence.
Already nature rests
Round about in a dream.
Only a deer moves
Along the edge of the forest.
Oh holy evening,
Oh blessed hour,
Burying grief,
Healing the wounded one,
Quieting pain.
How beautiful down below here!
Breathe, my heart,
Only peace, peace!
