Original text and translations
1 The bird is in its nest;
The bee is hushed in rest.
Rocked on thy mother's breast,
To thy mother's fond heart pressed,
2 The waning daylight dies,
The stars dream in the skies;
Daisies long have closed their eyes;
Calm, how calm! on all things lies,
3 Then sleep, my heart's delight,
And through the darksome night,
Round thy bed God's angels bright
Guard thee till I come with light,
