WANDERERS NACHTLIED
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

WANDERER'S NIGHT SONG
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Über allen Gipfeln
Ist Ruh',
In allen Wipfeln
Spürest Du
Kaum einen Hauch;
Die Vöglein schweigen im Walde.
Warte nur, balde
Ruhest du auch.
Over all the peaks
There is calm,
In all the treetops
You feel
Hardly a breath of air.
The little birds have fallen silent in the woods.
Just wait, soon
You will also be at rest.
