Schlafe du in süsser Ruh!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schlafe du in süßer Ruh!
Meine Liebe deckt dich zu.
Leise geht im Sternengarten
Wächter Mond, die Blumen warten.
Schlafe, schlafe.
Seiner Lampe gelber Schein
Leuchtet in dein Bett hinein
Und mit sanften Träumertritten
Kommt der Schlummer leis geschritten.
Schlafe, schlafe.
Schlafe du in süßer Ruh!
Ich nehme deine Wanderschuh
Und leg mein Herze liebentbrannt
In deine kleine, weiche Hand.
Schlafe, schlafe.
