Josef Lieber

"Josef, lieber, Josef mein
Hilf mir wiegen das Kendelein.
Will es wiegen und singen ein:
'Nun schlaf in Ruh, dein Augelein zu,  O Jesu!'"

  REFRAIN;
  Er ist erschienen am heutigen Tag,
  Am heutigen Tag in Israel.
  Der Maria verkundigt ist durch Gabriel, Ei-a, e-ia.
  Jesum Christ hat uns geborn Maria.

"Gerne, liebe Madel mein
Will ich wiege das kindelein,
Will es wiegen und singen ein;
'Nun schalf in Ruh, das Auglein zu, O JESU.'"

REFRAIN:
***********************
note: There should be umlauts at the "u" in "verkundigt" and the "a's" in
     "Madel" and "Auglein."
The tune is from the 14th Century, and is most familiar with the words
"Christ was born on Christmas day; Wreathe the holly, twine the bay", etc.
