The most famous german verses.

Über allen Gipfeln
Ist Ruh,

In allen Wipfeln
Spürest du
Kaum einen Hauch;
Die Vögelein schweigen im Walde.
Warte nur, balde
Ruhest du auch.

GOETHE, Wandrers Nachtlied.

On all hilltops
There is peace,
In all treetops
You hear
Hardly a breath.
The birds are silent in the woods.
Just wait, soon
You will rest too.
