Close your eyes, Lena, my darling,
While I sing your lullaby;
Fear thou no danger, Lena,
Move not, dear Lena, my darling;
For your brodder watches nigh you, Lena dear.
Angels guide thee, Lena dear, my darling,
Nothing evil can come near;
Brightest flowers bloom for thee,
Darling Lena, dear to me.
Go to sleep, go to sleep, my baby,
My baby, my baby.
Go to sleep, my baby, baby, oh! by,
Go to sleep, Lena, sleep.
Bright be the morning, my darling,
When you ope your eyes,
Sunbeams grow all around you, Lena,
Peace be with thee, love, my darling;
Blue and cloudless be the sky for Lena dear,
Birds sing their bright songs for thee, my darling,
Full of sweetest melody;
Angels ever hover near,
Darling Lena, dear to me.-Chorus.
