Original text and translations

German.png German text

Abendlich schon rauscht der Wald
Aus den tiefsten Gründen,
Droben wird der Herr nun bald
An die Sternlein zünden.
Wie so stille in den Schlünden,
Abendlich nur rauscht der Wald.

Alles geht zu seiner Ruh.
Wald und Welt verbrausen,
Schauernd hört der Wandrer zu,
Sehnt sich tief nach Hause.
Hier in Waldes grüner Klause,
Herz, geh endlich auch.
Eichendorff has "versausen", "Sehnt sich recht…" and "..stiller Klause"

English.png English translation

Evening falls o'er wood and plain,
Rustling leaves declare it,
Blessed news, the gleaming stars
Soon on high will bear it.
In the valley all is stilly,
Night descends on gorges hilly,
Blessed news, the gleaming stars
Soon on high will bear it.
Close of toil to all is come,
Woods and fields are dreary;
Lonely wanderers seek a home,
Seek their rest the weary,
Here, within this woodland valley,
Weary hearts will find their home.

French.png French translation

Le murmure du soir déjà s’élève dans la forêt,
Il vient du fond des terres,
Maintenant là-haut le Seigneur va bientôt
Faire scintiller les étoiles.
Quel silence dans les profondeurs !
Seul un murmure vespéral fait frémir la forêt.

Chaque être se dirige vers son repos,
La forêt et le monde s’évanouissent,
Frémissant, le promeneur solitaire tend l’oreille,
Il se languit fort de sa demeure.
Ici dans la calme retraite de la forêt,
Toi aussi, oh mon cœur, va enfin vers ton repos.
