Erdő mellett est vélëdtem,
Subám fejem alá tëttem,
Összetëttem két kezemet,
Úgy kértem jó Istenëmet:

Már mëguntam a járkálást,
a bujdosást,
Az idegën földön lakást.

Küldje hozzám szent angyalát,
Bátoritsa szívünk álmát,
Adjon Isten jó éjszakát,
mmm...

 De duisternis overviel me bij het bos
 Ik vouwde mijn cape als kussen onder m'n hoofd, sloot m'n handen
 en bad tot de Heer:
 O Heer, geef me beschutting,
 Ik ben zo moe van het zwerven,
 Van het schuilen,
 Van leven in vreemde landen.
 Heer, geef mij een goede nacht,
 Zend me 'n heilige engel,
 Bemoedig me in mijn diepste dromen,
 Heer, geef mij een goede nacht,
 mmm...
