Abendlich schon rauscht der Wald
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE IRI ITA
Abendlich schon rauscht der Wald
Aus den tiefsten Gründen,
Droben wird der Herr nun bald
[An die Sternlein zünden]1,
Wie so stille in den Schlünden,
Abendlich nur rauscht der Wald.

Alles geht zu seiner Ruh,
[Wald und Welt versausen]2,
Schauernd hört der Wandrer zu,
Sehnt sich [recht]3 nach Hause,
Hier in Waldes [grüner]4 Klause
Herz, geh' [endlich auch]5 zur Ruh!

Le soir enfin murmure la forêt
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Le soir enfin le murmure de la forêt
Monte des terres les plus reculées,
Là-haut le Seigneur va maintenant bientôt
Allumer les étoiles.
Quel silence dans les profondeurs !
Seulement le soir murmure la forêt.
 
Toute chose s'en va vers son repos.
La forêt et le monde s'évanouissent,
Tout tremblant, le voyageur solitaire tend l'oreille,
Il se languit de sa maison.
Ici, dans le calme hermitage de la forêt,
Oh mon coeur, toi aussi, vas vers ton repos.
