Laß mich schlummern, Herzlein schweige

Language: German (Deutsch)

Laß mich schlummern, Herzlein schweige,
sei nicht immer so laut, so wach,
horch, es säuselt durch die Zweige,
horch, es zwitschert im grünen Dach.

Liebe, Liebe zirpt die Grille,
Liebe zwitschert das Vögelein,
drum sei still, mein Herzlein, stille,
still, Sang der Liebe wiege dich ein.

Translation(s): DUT

Laat mij sluim’ren; hartje, zwijg nu

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

Laat mij sluim’ren; hartje, zwijg nu,
Klop niet altijd zo luid, wees mak,
Hoor, het suizelt door de twijgen,
Hoor, het kwettert in ‘t groene dak.

Liefde, liefde, sjirpt de krekel, 
Liefde kwettert de vogel klein,
Dus wees stil, mijn hartje, rekel,
Stil, zang van liefde wiege je fijn.
