Gute Ruh, gute Ruh!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Gute Ruh, gute Ruh!
Tu die Augen zu!
Wandrer, du müder, du bist zu Haus.
Die Treu' ist hier,
Sollst liegen bei mir,
Bis das Meer will trinken die Bächlein aus.

Will betten dich kühl
Auf weichem Pfühl
In dem blauen kristallenen Kämmerlein.
Heran, heran,
Was wiegen kann,
Woget und wieget den Knaben mir ein!

Wenn ein Jagdhorn schallt
Aus dem grünen Wald,
Will ich sausen und brausen wohl um dich her.
Blickt nicht herein,
Blaue Blümelein!
Ihr macht meinem Schläfer die Träume so schwer.

Hinweg, hinweg
Von dem Mühlensteg,
Hinweg, hinweg,
Böses [Mägdlein]1!
Daß ihn dein Schatten nicht weckt!
Wirf mir herein
Dein Tüchlein fein,
Daß ich die Augen ihm halte bedeckt!

Gute Nacht, gute Nacht!
Bis alles wacht,
Schlaf aus deine Freude, schlaf aus dein Leid!
Der Vollmond steigt,
Der Nebel weicht,
Und der Himmel da oben, wie ist er so weit!

시냇물의 자장가

Language: Korean (한국어/조선말) after the German (Deutsch)

쉬어라, 편안히!
두 눈을 감고!
힘든 방랑길 끝났으니
모두 잊고
내 품에 오라.
바다로 너- 데려가리니.

포근한 자리에
뉘어 주리,
푸른 물빛의 조그만 방 안에.
이리 오라,
내 아기 흔들어 재워다오!

사냥꾼 나팔
소리 들리면
시냇물 소리로 너를 감싸리.
저리 가라,
파란 꽃들아!
잠든 아기 꿈 잘 꿀 수 있도록.

미운 여인아.
네 발소리에 잠 깨지 않게!
이리 다오,
네 손-수-건.
그의 두 눈을 가려 주리니.

잘 자라, 잘 자라!
오래 오래.
네 기쁨과 슬픔 모두 벗고!
보름날 밤,
안개 걷혀
저 하늘 그 얼마나 넓은 곳인가!
