Schlaf ein, mein Liebchen, schlaf ein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schlaf ein, mein Liebchen, schlaf ein,
Leis durch die Blumen am Gitter
Säuselt des Laubes Gezitter,
Rauschen die Quellen herein;
Gesenkt auf den schneeweißen Arm,
Schlaf ein, mein Liebchen, schlaf ein,
Wie atmest du lieblich und warm!

Aus dem Kriege kommen wir heim;
In stürmischer Nacht und Regen,
Wenn ich auf der Lauer gelegen,
Wie dachte ich dorten dein!
Gott stand in der Not uns bei,
Nun droben bei Mondenschein,
Schlaf ruhig, das Land ist ja frei!

"Il messaggero di pace" da "Canti del tempo"

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

Dormi, amor mio, riposa,
lieve,  per la grata fiorita,
sussurra tremando il fogliame
mormora piano la fonte;
sulle tue nivee braccia assopita,
dormi, riposa, amor mio,
tiepido e leggero il respiro!
Dalla guerra abbiamo fatto ritorno;
nella notte di pioggia e bufera,
quando stavo di sentinella,
quante volte ho pensato di te!
Il Signore nel bisogno ci ha aiutato;
dormi in pace al chiaro di luna,
nel paese oramai liberato!
