Schlafe Kindlein

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schlafe Kindlein, schlafe ein,
Schließe deine Äugelein!
Schlaf in guter, süßer Ruh,
Tue deine Äuglein zu!

Kommt ihr Englein weiß und rein,
Wiegt mir wohl mein Kindelein,
Wiegt sein Herzchen sanft und gut,
Wie der Wind der Lilie tut.

Schlafe Kindlein, schlafe nun,
Sollst in Gottes Frieden ruhn,
Denn die lieben Engelein
Wollen deine Wächter sein.
