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.
