German.png German text

Still, still, still,
Weil's Kindlein schlafen will.
Die Englein tun schön jubilieren,
Bei dem Kripplein musizieren.
Still, still, still,
Weil's Kindlein schlafen will.

Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf,
Mein liebes Kindlein schlaf!
Maria tut dich niedersingen
Und ihr treues Herz darbringen.
Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf,
Mein liebes Kindlein schlaf!

Groß, groß, groß
Die Lieb ist übergroß!
Gott hat den Himmelsthron verlassen
Und muss reisen auf der Straßen.
Groß, groß, groß
Die Lieb' ist übergroß.

Auf, auf, auf,
Ihr Adamskinder auf!
Fallet Jesum all zu Füßen,
Weil er für uns d'Sünd tut büßen!
Auf, auf, auf,
Ihr Adamskinder auf!

Wir, wir, wir,
Tun rufen all zu dir:
Tu uns des Himmels Reich aufschließen,
Wenn wir einmal sterben müssen.
Wir, wir, wir,
Wir rufen all zu dir.

Still, still, still,
my heart with joy is filled.
I'll sing you a song and watch by your manger,
guard you from harm and keep you from danger.
Still, still, still,
my hear with joy is filled.

Sleep, sleep, sleep,
mid the oxen and the sheep.
The shepherds have come who heard the story,
angels bend low in all their glory.
Sleep, sleep, sleep,
mid the oxen and the sheep.

Still, still, still,
o sleep my holy child,
and while you sleep my voice I will raise,
to God your father sing your praise.
Sleep, sleep,sleep,
o sleep my holy child.
