Gut Nacht, gut Nacht, mein liebster Schatz,
Gut Nacht, schlaf wohl, mein Kind!
Daß dich die Engel hüten all,
Die in dem Himmel sind!
Gut Nacht, gut Nacht, mein lieber Schatz,
Schlaf du, von nachten lind.

Schlaf wohl, schlaf wohl und träume von mir,
Träum von mir heute nacht!
Daß, wenn ich auch da schlafen tu,
Mein Herz um dich doch wacht;
Daß es in lauter Liebesglut
An dich derzeit gedacht.

Es singt im Busch die Nachtigall
Im klaren Mondenschein,
Der Mond scheint in das Fenster dir,
Guckt in dein Kämmerlein;
Der Mond schaut dich im Schlummer da,
Doch ich muß ziehn allein!

Serenata
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Bona nit, bona nit, estimat tresor meu,
bona nit, dorm bé, criatura meva!
Que et guardin tots els àngels
que hi ha al cel!
Bona nit, bona nit, estimat tresor meu,
dorm dolçament en la nit.

Dorm bé, dorm bé i somia en mi,
somia en mi aquesta nit!
Car encara que jo també m’adormi,
el meu cor vetllarà per tu,
que amb un ardent i sincer amor,
pensa en tu en tot moment.

Al matossar canta un rossinyol
a la clara llum de la lluna,
per la finestra, la lluna brilla damunt teu,
la lluna guaita dins la teva cambra;
la lluna et veu allà adormida,
però jo me’n haig d’anar tot sol!
