Available translation(s): CAT DUT ENG FIN FRE GRE ITA KOR POR
Gute Ruh', gute Ruh'!
Thu 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]1 Pfühl,
In dem blauen krystallenen 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]2,
Blaue Blümelein!
Ihr macht meinem Schläfer die Träume so schwer.

Hinweg, hinweg
Von dem Mühlensteg,
Böses [Mägdlein]3, 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]4, wie ist er so weit!

Bom descanso, bom descanso!
Language: Portuguese (Português)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Bom descanso, bom descanso!
Feche os olhos!
Cansado caminhante, você está em casa.
Aqui está a fidelidade,
E você vai se deitar comigo,
Até que o mar beba o riacho.

Eu vou fazer para você uma cama fria
Sobre um travesseiro suave
Nas câmaras azuis cristalinas.
Venham, venham,
Todos que sabem ninar,
Embalem e nanem meu garoto!

Se uma trompa de caça soar
De dentro da floresta verde,
Eu vou zumbir e assobiar aqui em volta de 
você.
Não olhem pra cá,
Pequenas flores azuis!
Vocês tornam os sonhos do meu adormecido
muito pesados.

Vá embora, vá embora
Da ponte do moinho,
Garota má! Pra que a tua sombra não o
acorde!
Lance aqui para dentro de mim
Tua lenço fino,
Pra que eu mantenha os olhos dele cobertos.

Boa noite, boa noite!
Até que tudo acorde,
Durma até o fim a sua alegria, durma até o
fim a sua dor!
A lua cheia sobe,
O nevoeiro cede,
E o céu lá em cima, quão vasto ele é!
