Die ihr schwebet

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Spanish (Español)

Die ihr schwebet
Um diese Palmen
In Nacht und Wind,
Ihr heilgen Engel,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Ihr Palmen von Bethlehem
Im Windesbrausen,
Wie mögt ihr heute
So zornig sausen!
O rauscht nicht also!
Schweiget, neiget
Euch leis und lind;
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Der Himmelsknabe
Duldet Beschwerde,
Ach, wie so müd er ward
Vom Leid der Erde.
Ach nun im Schlaf ihm
Leise gesänftigt
Die Qual zerrinnt,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein Kind.

Grimmige Kälte
Sauset hernieder,
Womit nur deck ich
Des Kindleins Glieder!
O all ihr Engel,
Die ihr geflügelt
Wandelt im Wind,
Stillet die Wipfel!
Es schlummert mein kind.

Vous qui planez

Language: French (Français) after the German (Deutsch)

Vous qui planez
Autour de ces palmiers
Dans la nuit et le vent,
Vous, saints anges,
Faites taire les cimes !
Mon enfant dort.

Vous, palmiers de Bethléem
Dans le vent rugissant,
Comment pouvez-vous aujourd'hui
Siffler si furieusement !
Oh, ne rugissez pas ainsi !
Taisez-vous, penchez-vous
Délicatement et doucement ;
Faites taire les cimes !
Mon enfant dort.

L'enfant du ciel
Endure l'inconfort,
Ah, comme il est fatigué
Par la peine de la terre.
Ah, maintenant dans le sommeil
Adoucie délicatement
Sa peine se dissipe.
Faites taire les cimes !
Mon enfant dort.

Des froids rigoureux
Soufflent vers ci,
Comment vais-je couvrir
Les membres du petit enfant !
Oh, tous les anges,
Vous avec vos ailes
Qui voyagez dans le vent.
Faites taire les cimes !
Mon enfant dort.
