Original text and translations

Dutch.png Dutch text

1  Stil, stil, stil nu't kindje slapen wil.
Maria over't kind gebogen
lacht het toe met minlijk ogen.
Stil, stil, stil nu't kindje slapen wil.

2  Slaap, slaap, slaap mijn lieve zoontje slaap.
De lieve englen zingen lijze
bij uw krib de jubelwijze.
Slaap, slaap, slaap, mijn lieve zoontje slaap.

3  Groot, groot, groot, de liefd' is wondergroot.
God heeft de hemeltroon verlaten
om te dolen hier verlaten.
Groot, groot, groot, de liefd' is wondergroot.

1  Soft now, soft, the child wants to sleep.
Mary bends over the child,
smiling at him with tender eyes.
Soft, now, soft, the child wants to sleep.

2  Sleep now, sleep, my dear son, sleep.
The dear angels are softly singing
a song of joy by your crib.
Sleep now, sleep, my dear son, sleep.

3  Great, yes, great, love is astonishingly great.
God has left the heights of heaven
to wander, abandoned, here.
Great, yes, great, love is astonishingly great.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
