Mille cherubini in coro
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG GER
Mille cherubini in coro
ti sorridono dal ciel.
Una dolce canzone
t'accarezza il crin.
Una man ti guida lieve
fra le nuvole d'or,
sognando e vegliando
su te, mio tesor,
proteggendo il tuo cammin.

Dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor mio.
Dormi, sogna,
posa il capo sul mio cor.

Chiudi gli occhi,
ascolta gli angioletti,
dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor.

Chiudi gli occhi,
ascolta gli angioletti,
dormi, dormi,
sogna, piccolo amor.

Note: Melichar's setting of this text is an arrangement of a melody by Schubert whose text can be found here.
