Sonnenstrahlen
Durch die Tannen,
Wie sie fallen,
Ziehn von dannen
Alle Schmerzen,
Und im Herzen
Wohnet reiner Friede nur.

Stilles Sausen
Lauer Lüfte,
Und im Brausen
Zarte Düfte,
Die sich neigen
Aus den Zweigen,
Atmet aus die ganze Flur.

Wenn nur immer
Dunkle Bäume,
Sonnenschimmer,
Grüne Säume
Uns umblühten
Und umglühten,
Tilgend aller Qualen Spur!

In the wood
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
Sunbeams
through the fir-trees
falling,
Draw from there
all pain;
and in our hearts
dwells pure peace only.

The still murmuring
of mild breezes,
And the whispering
of delicate scents:
they float down
from the branches,
breathing gently on the entire meadow.

If only
the dark trees,
the shimmering sunlight,
and the green forest-edge,
could blossom
and glow around us all the time,
erasing every trace of pain!
