To some degree, sometimes "overwhelmed" could be synonym with "sem palavras" (okay, quase sem palavras). But not always - of course; one gets the hang of it with time.

Some examples from the web:
When I saw the Niagara Falls for the first time, I was overwhelmed with amazement!
I had that indenifable feeling of amazement.

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by how adorable my horse is.
(in other words "it´s indescribable how adorable she is.)

I am so happy to hear that you are getting married (And that overwhelmed will be a part of the day!..)
(that feeling of happiness that washes me, which I couldn´t explain in word/put in words.)
