English.png English text

Now hill and dale are wrapped in silence deep,
The weary world is sinking fast to sleep,
And through the branches rustle the evening breeze.
My heart, may thou rest now, with all thy grief,
Heart, rest thee now, in slumber find relief,
The evening breeze thro' the trees sings lullaby,
The day would slumber now,
Rest also thou.

Translation by John Oxenford
