Ruhe, meine Seele!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Nicht ein Lüftchen
Regt sich leise,
Sanft entschlummert
Ruht der Hain;
Durch der Blätter
Dunkle Hülle
Stiehlt sich lichter
Sonnenschein.
Ruhe, ruhe,
Meine Seele,
Deine Stürme
Gingen wild,
Hast getobt und
Hast gezittert,
Wie die Brandung,
Wenn sie schwillt.
Diese Zeiten
Sind gewaltig,
Bringen Herz
Und Hirn in Not --
Ruhe, ruhe,
Meine Seele,
Und vergiß,
Was dich bedroht!

Rustig, ziel, word rustig!

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Niet één windje
Roert zich lichtjes,
Zachtjes sluim’ren
Bos en veen;
Door het donk’re
Dak der blaad’ren
Kruipt het lichte 
Zonlicht heen.

Rustig, rustig,
Ziel, word rustig.
Jij was vol van
Stormgeweld,
Hebt geraasd en
Hebt gesidderd,
Als de branding
Die aanzwelt.

Deze tijden 
Zijn schrikwekkend,
Slaan ons
Met verbijstering --
Rustig, rustig,
Ziel, word rustig,
En vergeet
Wat je beving!
