Die ihr schwebet

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Die ihr schwebet
Um diese Palmen
In Nacht und Wind,
Ihr heilgen Engel,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Ihr Palmen von Bethlehem
Im Windesbrausen,
Wie mögt ihr heute
So zornig sausen!
O rauscht nicht also!
Schweiget, neiget
Euch leis und lind;
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Der Himmelsknabe
Duldet Beschwerde,
Ach, wie so müd er ward
Vom Leid der Erde.
Ach nun im Schlaf ihm
Leise gesänftigt
Die Qual zerrinnt,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Grimmige Kälte
Sauset hernieder,
Womit nur deck ich
Des Kindleins Glieder!
O all ihr Engel,
Die ihr geflügelt
Wandelt im Wind,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein kind.

Die hier rondzweeft

Language: Dutch (Nederlands) after the German (Deutsch)

Die hier rondzweeft
Om deze palmen
In nacht en wind,
O, heil'ge eng'len,
Maak stil de kruinen,
Hier sluimert mijn kind.
 
O, palmen van Bethlehem,
Die wind doet ruisen,
Hoe kun je nu toch
Zo toornig druisen!
Ruis niet zo hevig!
Zwijg toch, nijg toch,
Bedaar de wind.
Maak stil de kruinen!
Hier sluimert mijn kind.
  
Het kind des hemels,
Geen die het spaarde!
Ach, hoe vermoeid het werd
Door 't leed der aarde.
Ach, nu in slaap wordt
Stilaan het kalmer,
De pijn ontbindt.
Maak stil de kruinen!
Hier sluimert mijn kind.
 
Grimmige koude
Suist naar beneden,
Waarmee nu dek ik
Het kind zijn leden?
O, alle eng'len,
Die op je vleugels
Zwerft in de wind,
Maak stil de kruinen,
Hier sluimert mijn kind.
