CRADLE SONG. (WIEGENLIED.)
Arr. from Johannes Brahms.

Lullaby and goodnight!
With roses bedight!
With down overspread,
Is baby's wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumbers be blest.
Lay thee down now and rest.
May thy slumbers be blest.

Lullaby and goodnight!
Thy mother's delight!
Sweet visions untold
Thy soul shall unfold.
God will keep thee from harms.
Thou shalt wake in my arms.
God will keep thee from harms.
Thou shalt wake in my arms.
