1  Weep you no more, sad fountains;
What need you flow so fast?
Look how the snowy mountains
Heav'n's sun doth gently waste.
But my sun's heav'nly eyes
View not your weeping
That now lies sleeping,
Softly, softly, now softly lies sleeping.

2  Sleep is a reconciling,
A rest that Peace begets.
Doth not the sun rise smiling
When fair at e'en he sets?
Rest you then, rest, sad eyes,
Melt not in weeping
while she lies sleeping,
Softly, softly, now softly lies sleeping.

1  No ploreu més, tristes fonts;
Perquè heu de brollar tan ràpid?
Mireu com les muntanyes nevades,
el sol celest, gentilment desgasta.
Però els meus ulls de sol celest
no veuen el vostre plor,
que ara jeu adormida,
dolçament, dolçament, ara jeu adormida.

2  El son és una conciliació,
un repòs que la pau engendra.
Però no hi ha alba de sol somrient
quan surt per la plana?
Reposeu doncs, reposeu tristos ulls,
no us fongueu en el plor
mentre ella jeu adormida,
dolçament, dolçament, ara jeu adormida.
