Eia popeia,
Schlief lieber [wie]1 du!
Willst mirs nicht glauben,
So sieh mir nur zu.
Sieh mir nur zu,
Wie schläfrig ich bin!
Schlafen, zum Schlafen,
Da steht mir mein Sinn!
Eia popeia!

Hab ich mein Kindele
Schlafen gelegt,
Hab ich's mit Walte-
Gott Vater! zudeckt.
Des walt Gott Vater,
Sohn, heiliger Geist,
Der mir mein Kindele
Tränket und speist!
Eia popeia!
