German Lyrics for Brahms’ Lullaby (Original Lyrics)

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
mit Rosen bedacht,
mit Näglein 
besteckt,
schlupf′ unter die Deck!
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt.

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
von Englein bewacht,
die zeigen im Traum
dir Christkindleins Baum.
Schlaf nun selig und süß,
schau im Traum ‘s Paradies.

English Lyrics for Brahms’ Lullaby

Lullaby and goodnight,
With roses bedight,
With lilies bespread,
Is baby’s wee bed;

Lay down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.

About Composer Johannes Brahms

Johannes Brahms (May 7, 1833 –April 3, 1897), composer and pianist, was one of the leading musicians of the Romantic period. Born in Hamburg, Brahms spent much of his professional life in Vienna, Austria, where he was a leader of the musical scene. In his lifetime, Brahms’s popularity and influence were considerable; following a comment by the nineteenth century conductor Hans von Bülow, he is sometimes grouped with Johann Sebastian Bach and Ludwig van Beethoven as one of the Three B’s.
