Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Ha tanto tempo ch'eravamo muti
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Ha tanto tempo ch'eravamo muti!
Eccoci ritornati alla favella:
E gli angioli dal ciel son venuti,
L'hanno posta la pace in tanta guerra:
E son venuti gli angioli di Dio,
L'hanno posta la pace nel cor mio.
E son venuti gli angioli d'amore,
L'hanno posta la pace nel mio cuore.

Available translation(s): ENG FRE HEB
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.
