Ruhe, meine Seele!
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FRE ITA SPA
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!

Pace, anima mia
Language: Italian (Italiano)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Non un'aura 
si muove lieve,
dolcemente addormetato 
riposa il boschetto;
attraverso l'oscuro riparo 
delle foglie
si insinua chiara 
la luce del sole.
Pace, pace, 
anima mia,
le tue tempeste 
sono state selvagge,
ha infuriato 
ed hai tremato,
come la marea 
quando monta.
Questi tempi 
sono terribili,
portano cuore 
e mente nella miseria -
pace, pace, 
anima mia,
e dimentica ciò 
che ti ha minacciato!
