Alle Sternelein, die am Himmel steh'n,
sollen meinem Kind zu Diensten geh'n;
alle Blümlein, die in Düften sprießen,
sollen neigend mir mein Kind begrüßen,
alle Vöglein, die in den Lüften schwingen,
sollen mir mein Kind zur Ruhe singen,
und die Engel, die in Himmelsweiten
goldgesäumte Flügel breiten,
sollen dich behutsam, fein behutsam
auf den Weg zum lieben, lieben Gott geleiten.
