Seeking lyrics to this lovely song (have a recording by Harry Belafonte on a very old album). According to liner notes, the title means, "night, night."

As indeed it does. Try looking under alternate spellings "layla" or "laila" -- the vowel in Hebrew here is a diphthong of "a" and semivocalic "y".

Good luck! I'm having no luck with this online.

A good way to find it is to put "night" into a translator to get the word in Hebrew, then put the Hebrew word into Google. Works for any language. Now, are they the good ones? that is the question!

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, הָרוּחַ עוֹבֶרֶת,
לַיְלָה לַיְלָה, הוֹמָה הַצַּמֶּרֶת,
לַיְלָה לַיְלָה, כּוֹכָב מְזַמֵּר,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, כַּבִּי אֶת הַנֵּר.
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, כַּבִּי אֶת הַנֵּר.

לַיְלָה לַיְלָה,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, כַּבִּי אֶת הַנֵּר.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, עִצְמִי אֶת עֵינַיִךְ,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, בַּדֶּרֶךְ אֵלַיִךְ,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, רָכְבוּ חֲמוּשִׁים,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, שְׁלֹשָׁה פָּרָשִׁים.
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, שְׁלֹשָׁה פָּרָשִׁים.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, שְׁלֹשָׁה פָּרָשִׁים.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, אֶחָד הָיָה טֶרֶף,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, שֵׁנִי מֵת בַּחֶרֶב,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, וְזֶה שֶׁנּוֹתַר,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, אֶת שְׁמֵךְ לֹא זָכַר.
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, אֶת שְׁמֵךְ לֹא זָכַר.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, אֶת שְׁמֵךְ לֹא זָכַר.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, הָרוּחַ גּוֹבֶרֶת,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, הוֹמָה הַצַּמֶּרֶת,
לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה, רַק אַתְּ מְחַכָּה,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, הַדֶּרֶךְ רֵיקָה.
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, הַדֶּרֶךְ רֵיקָה.

לַיְלָה, לַיְלָה,
נוּמִי, נוּמִי, הַדֶּרֶךְ רֵיקָה.

From there

Great suggestion, Monique.

I found several more videos of this lullaby at YouTube:
