Lullaby Lyrics

Lullaby Lyrics

Baby , Child , Parenting , Toddler

Hey how many of you really know the lullaby lyrics? Or have you been humming all along to the tune….

I never knew the exact lyrics, but somehow there was this special radio station that will play this song at the end of the day, with a twist. Their lyrics goes like this:-

Try to sleep now, close your eyes. Try to think of tomorrow. All the stars are shining bright. They’ll be watching you all night. All the things you enjoy on this beautiful day. All your friends, all your toys, will be waiting for you to play.

Try to sleep now, close your eyes. Soon the birds will start singing. All the stars wish you goodnight. So I’m switching off the lights. One more hug. One more smile. Kiss you once. Kiss you twice. I’ll be here, for awhile, try to sleep now and close your eyes.

That was what I have been singing to my kids ever since they were born, so much so that they know the full lyrics too, and they sing together with me! Sometimes the more they sing, the more awake they get….*sigh*

Today, I found out what was the real lyrics from here , never knew this famous song was originated from German.

(English version)

Lullaby and good night, with roses bedight

With lilies o’er spread is baby’s wee bed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lay thee down now and rest, may thy slumber be blessed

Lullaby and good night, thy mother’s delight

Bright angels beside my darling abide

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

They will guard thee at rest, thou shalt wake on my breast

( original German )

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, Mit Rosen bedacht,

Mit Naeglein besteckt, schlupf unter die Deck’

Morgen frueh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt

Morgen frueh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, Von Englein bewacht

Die zeigen im Traum, dir Christkindleins Baum

Schlaf nun selig und suess, Schau im Traum’s Paradies

Schlaf nun selig und suess, Schau im Traum’s Paradies
