56 Songs That Every Child Should Know
Now bylow, baby, and slumber soon will find you!
My darling daughter, now sleep and please your mother, For she is weary with long rocking your cradle
All night and day, and one hour like the other.
Now bylow, baby, my love, my darling Ninna, And may the Father repose and comfort bring you!
Now fall asleep, and a lullaby together
The Father, Son and Holy Ghost shall sing you.
O Holy Saviour, who art my consolation,
Thou who didst comfort two women sore afflicted.
Consoler Thou of Martha and Mary,
Be baby and mother by Thy love protected!
Thy consolation was giv'n to Mary and Martha, In mercy daughter and mother Thou invitest!
Now bylow, baby, and over you a shower
Shall fall of golden rings and pearls the brightest.
The Maiden's Lament
Translator, Chapman. Philipp J. Duringer.
