Lullaby and good night,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o’erspread
Is baby's wee bed,
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumbers be blest (2x)

Lullaby and goodnight,
Thy mother's delight,
Bright angels beside
My darling abide,
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shall wake on my breast (2x).

Gutn Abend, gut' Nacht,
Mit Rosen bedacht,
Mit naglein bbestecht,
schlupf unter die Deck,
Morgen fruh, wenn Gott will,
wirst gewecht (2x).

Guten Abend, gut' Nacht,
Von Englein bewacht,
Die zeigen im Traum,
dir Christkindllein's baum,
Schlaf' nun selig und suss,
schau' im Traum's Paradies (2x)
