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 Bs.

Excerpt from Wikipedia

Brahms’ Lullaby is the name for several children’s lullabies with similar lyrics set to Brahms’ melody.  The original of which was set in German by Johannes Brahms’:

Wiegenlied

Guten Abend, gute Nacht, mit Rosen bedacht,
Mit Näglein besteckt, schlüpf unter die Deck!’
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will, wirst du wieder geweckt
Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum ‘s Paradies
Schlaf nun selig und süß, schau im Traum ‘s Paradies
Guten Abend, gute Nacht, von Englein bewacht
Die zeigen im Traum, dir Christkindleins Baum

 

English Lyrics

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.

Lyrics

Lullaby, and good night,
With pink roses bedight,
With lilies o’erspread,
Is my baby’s sweet head.
Lay you down now, and rest,
May your slumber be blessed!
Lay you down now, and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed!
