Abendlied
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): ENG FIN FRE
Langsam wird mein Kindchen müde,
  Leise kommt herbei die Nacht.
Stille Wolken gehn am Himmel
  Und der Mond ist aufgewacht.

Schaut mit seinen klaren Blicken
  In des Kindes Kämmerlein,
Streichelt es mit sanften Händen
  In den schönsten Traum hinein.
