‘t Vogeltje zit in de sparrenboom,
Doet niets dan zingen en slaan;
Wat moet dan dat voor een vogel zijn?
Dat moet een nachtegaal zijn!
 
Nee, mijn schat, dat is geen nachtegaal,
Nee, mijn schat, da's niet zo puik;
Geen nachtegaal slaat in een sparrenboom,
Maar in een hazelnootstruik.

Slaap, kindje, slaap,
Je vader zorgt voor 't schaap,
Je moeder schudt de kleine boom,
Daar valt vanaf een fijne droom,
Slaap, kindje, slaap.

Slaap, kindje, slaap,
Aan de hemel gaat een schaap,
De sterren zijn de lammetjes,
De maan, die is het herdertje,
Slaap, kindje, slaap.

[ ... ]
Slaap, kindje, slaap, Ik geef aan jou een schaap, Het draagt een gouden belletje, Het doet met jou een spelletje, Slaap, kindje, slaap. Slaap, kindje, slaap, En blaat niet als een schaap, Want anders komt de herdershond En bijt mijn kindje met zijn mond, Slaap, kindje, slaap. Slaap, kindje, slaap, Ga weg, en let op 't schaap, Ga weg, jij pikzwart hondje klein, En maak niet wakker 't kindje mijn, Slaap, kindje, slaap.

Wille wille wil, een kleine roe!
Wille wille wil, hij hoorde schreeuwen,
Wille wille wil, het jochie werd niet moe!
 
Wille wille wil, mijn kind is lief, hoor,
Wille wille wil, mijn kind is stil!

Wille wille wil, aan wie hem hebben wil!

Smacht vaak eenzaam 't hart vol dorst.

Zachte tonen der ziel, gewekt door d' adem der liefde,
Adem bevend maar uit, zie of zich opent een oor.
Wek een liefhebbend hart, en als geen enkel zich opent,
Drage 'n nachtwind je zuchtend naar 't mijne terug.
