In der Stillen Einsamkeit is sung to the tune of Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star...

Notes

Here's an alternate translation Monique Palomares sent me:

In the still isolation/loneliness
Thou findest my praise ready
Greatest God answer me
For my heart is seeking thee.

Thou art always here
Never still though silent
Thou rulest the yearly seasons
And thou setest them in order.

This cold winter air
Calls with hearty strength.
See what a mighty Lord,
Summer and Winter He makes.

Note: Pennsylvania Dutch is a dialect of German. It's also called Deitsch and Pennsylvania German.
