Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.

Gutten har siddet på sin Moders Fang.
De to har leget hele Livsdagen lang.

Gutten har hvilet ved sin Moders Bryst
hele Livsdagen lang. Grud signe dig, min Lyst!

Gutten har ligget til mit Hjerte tæt
hele Livsdagen lang. Nu er han så træt.

Sov, du dyreste Gutten min!
Jeg skal vugge dig, jeg skal våge.

Solveijgs Wiegenlied V
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Norwegian (Bokmål) 
Schlaf, du treuester Kanbe mein!
Ich will wiegen mein Kind und wachen.

Still im Schoße hat's gelauscht dem Sang.
Mit mir gespielt hat es sein Lebtage lang.

An seiner Mutter Brust mag gern es sein
All sein Lebtage lang. Gott segne es fein!

An meinem Herzen laß ich's gerne ruhn
All sein Lebtage lang, so müd ist es nun.

Schlaf du treuester Knabe mein!
Ich will wiegen mein Kind und wachen!
