Available translation(s): ENG FRE ITA
Hier ist Friede. Hier weine ich mich aus über alles!
Hier löst sich mein unfaßbares, unermeßliches Leid,
das mir die Seele verbrennt ...
Siehe, hier sind keine Menschen, keine Ansiedlungen.
Hier ist Friede! Hier tropft Schnee leise in Wasserlachen ...

Here's Peace.  Here I can cry my heart out.
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Here's Peace.  Here I can cry my heart out.
Here the incomprehensible immense pain
that burns my soul can find release. 
See, here there are no people, no settlements.
Here's Peace! Here the snow falls gently into flowing water.
