Language: German (Deutsch)
Nun fallen die Augen müde mir zu.
Komm, Engel des Schlummers, hüte die Ruh,
Komm halte am Bette freundliche Wacht,
Und kosige Träume webe, o Nacht!
Und schlürfe, was nimmer, Seele, wohl Du
Geatmet im Lichte: Friede und Ruh.

À la nuit
Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)
Maintenant mes yeux fatigués se ferment.
Viens, ange du sommeil, veille sur mon repos,
Viens, monte amicalement la garde près de mon lit,
Et tisse des rêves caressants, ô nuit !
Et savoure, ô âme, ce que jamais tu n'as
Respiré à la lumière : paix et repos.
