Ninnananna. Ninnananna.
Sleep, my Son,
Oh sleep my belov'd One;
Sleep, my Son,
Sleep my belov'd One;
Ninnananna. Ninnananna.
Sleep, my Son,
Oh sleep my belov'd One;
Sleep, my Son,
With lament in deepest sorrow,
Thou foretell'st the Cross of the morrow:
Now 'tis time for Thy soft sleeping.
Slumber dear, and leave thy weeping.
Grief will come as soon as may be,
Sleep now my baby.
