Mille cherubini in coro

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Mille cherubini in coro
ti sorridono dal ciel.
Una dolce canzone
t'accarezza il crin.
Una man ti guida lieve
fra le nuvole d'or,
sognando e vegliando
su te, mio tesor,
proteggendo il tuo cammin.

Dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor mio.
Dormi, sogna,
posa il capo sul mio cor.

Chiudi gli occhi,
ascolta gli angioletti,
dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor.

Chiudi gli occhi,
ascolta gli angioletti,
dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor.

Tausend Cherubim im Chore

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Tausend Cherubim im Chore
lächeln dir vom Himmel zu.
Eine liebliche Weise
streichelt zärtlich dein Gesicht.
Eine Hand dich sanft geleitet
durch die Wolken aus Gold,
erträumend dich behütend,
allzeit, Liebster mein,
dich beschützend auf deinem Weg.

Schlummre, schlummre,
träume süß mein liebes Kindlein,
schlummre, träume,
leg dein Köpfchen mir ans Herz.

Schließe die Äuglein,
lausche den kleinen Englein,
schlummre, schlummre,
träume, liebstes Kindlein mein.

Schließe die Äuglein,
lausche den kleinen Englein,
schlafe, schlafe,
träume, liebstes Kindlein mein.
