Translation Singable translation by Constance Bache (1846 - 1903)

Forest solitude
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
O forest deep, so still and so vast,
With thee the heart finds peace at last!
Slumber, when soft fall the shades of night,
Through thy silence flows the streamlet bright.
The Holy Mother's arm
Is stretch'd o'er thee to guard thy rest from harm.
Slumber then, O forest deep!
Rest in peace, silent peace!

From a Rubinstein score.
