Available translation(s): FRE
Waldeinsamkeit!
Du grünes Revier,
Wie liegt so weit
Die Welt von hier!
Schlaf nur, wie bald
Kommt der Abend schön,
Durch den stillen Wald
Die Quellen gehn,
Die Mutter Gottes wacht,
Mit ihrem Sternenkleid
Bedeckt sie dich sacht
In der Waldeinsamkeit,
Gute Nacht, Gute Nacht! -

Solitude de la forêt !
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Solitude de la forêt !
Aire de verdure,
Comme le monde
Se trouve loin d'ici !
Endors-toi, bientôt
Le joli soir arrivera,
Dans la forêt tranquille
Les fontaines s'écouleront,
La mère de Dieu veillera,
De son habit d'étoiles,
Elle te couvrira doucement,
Dans la solitude de la forêt,
Bonne nuit, bonne nuit !
