Sov saa stille, sov, min lille,
Nu er det jo nat.
Vet du ei, at alle fugle,
Blunder længst i skog og krat,
Og de lyse blomster vugges
Alt i sakte slummer ind,
Saa skal vi paa puten lægge
Varligt kind mod kind.

Sov saa stille, sov, min lille,
Natten er ei lang.
Og imorgen skal du vaagne
Til de glade fugles sang,
Og da skinner atter solen
I den lyse blomster eng.
Sov saa stille, sov min lille
I den bløte seng.
