Wir haben Beide lange Zeit geschwiegen

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wir haben Beide lange Zeit geschwiegen,
Auf einmal kam uns nun die Sprache wieder.
Die Engel, die herab vom Himmel fliegen,
Sie brachten nach dem Krieg den Frieden wieder.
Die Engel Gottes sind herabgeflogen,
Mit ihnen ist der Frieden eingezogen.
Die Liebesengel kamen über Nacht
Und haben Frieden meiner Brust gebracht.

We have both been silent a long time

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

We have both been silent a long time -
All at once, speech has come to us again.
The angels who fly down from heaven
Have brought peace again after the war.
The angels of God have flown down
And peace has moved in with them.
The angels of love came overnight
And have brought peace to my breast.
