Hörst du, wie die Stürme sausen
Durch den blätterlosen Wald?
Hörst du, wie die Fluten brausen,
Wie es um die Ufer hallt?
Auf dein Antlitz sinke nieder,
Denn die Gottheit zieht daher;
Singt der Sturm und singt das Meer.

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)
Do you hear how the storms roar
Through the leafless forest?
Do you hear how the waters rush,
How it echoes along the shores?
Sink down and hide your face,
For the divinity is passing by;
High songs of hallelujah
Sings the storm and sings the sea.
