O süsser Schlaf von Isouard
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the French (Français) 
O süßer Schlaf, lass dein Gefieder
schützend die Unschuld sanft umweh'n,
lass sie im Traume beglücket sich seh'n!
Hoffnung, steig, steig sanft hernieder!

Note: Abt's song uses a melody by Niccolò Isouard from his opera "Cendrillon" (in German: "Aschenbrödel")
