Brahms' Lullaby

Brahms' Lullaby

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 slumbers be blest. (2x)

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

Guten Abend, gut' Nacht, Mit Rosen bedacht,
Mit naglein bestecht, 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)
