English text

Sleep, my son, oh slumber softly.
While thy mother watches o'er thee,
Nothing can affright or harm thee.
Sleep, oh! Sleep, my son.
Far away, zithers play,
Dancing gay, calls to-day
Vainly play, zithers gay.
Here I stay all the day.
Happily guarding thee,
Peacefully watching thee.
Sleep, my son, oh slumber softly.
While thy mother watches o'er thee,
Sleep, oh! sleep my son.
