Brahms’s Lullaby

Lyrics - German

(Johannes Brahms, 1868)

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
mit Rosen bedacht,
mit Näglein besteckt,
schlupf′ unter die Deck!
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt.

English Translation

Good evening, good night,
covered with roses,
with nails,
slip under the deck!
Tomorrow morning if God wants
you will be woken up again.

Singable English Version

Lullaby and good night,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
