La ninna nanna di Schubert - Wiegenlied, D. 498, op. 98 No. 2 / Franz Schubert

Franz Schubert's Wiegenlied (lullaby) "Schlafe, schlafe, holder süßer Knabe" (sleep, sleep, me sweet, tender boy), D 498, Op. 98, No. 2, is a lullaby that was composed in November 1816.

The song is also known as "A Thousand Cherubs in Choir", thanks to the arrangement for voice and orchestra in Del Paeseno by Alois Melichar.

The text of Schubert's lullaby

The original text in German

Sleep, sleep, dear, sweet boy,

your mother's hand gently rocks you;

this cradle belt brings you gentle rest, mild refreshment.

Sleep, sleep in the sweet grave

nor does your mother's arm protect you;

all desires, all belongings she lovingly embraces, all lovingly.

Sleep, sleep in the downy womb,

you are still surrounded by a loud love tone;

a lily, a rose, after sleep they become your reward.

The text in English

Sleep, sleep, gracious, sweet boy,

softly rocked by your mother's hand;

gentle rest, mild refreshment brings you this floating cradle-strap.

Sleep, sleep in the sweet grave,

still protected by your mother's arms;

all her desires, all her possessions she holds lovingly, glowing with love.

Sleep, sleep in the downy bosom,

still notes of love grow around you;

a lily, a rose, after sleep they will reward you.

Slumber, slumber, O my darling baby,

Gently rocked by Mother's gentle hand;

Softly rest and safely slumber,

While she swings thee by this cradle-band.

Slumber, slumber, all so sweetly buried,

Guarded by thy mother's loving arm;

All her wishes, all possessions,

And her love, shall shelter thee from harm.

Slumber, slumber, warm thy nest and downy,

Many a loving song for thee she'll sing;

Then a rosebud and a lily,

When thou wakest, she to thee will bring.

The text of Brahms' lullaby

The text in Del Paeseno

Ninna nanna mio ben, riposa seren
an angel of heaven, you watch faithfully.
A holy vision makes the core ecstatic
a sweet song, may dreams cradle.
Good night baby, rest cute
rest quiet, gentle child.
When the dawn comes, you will rise from the lettin
if the Lord wills it, you will rise or child.

Good night baby, rest cute
rest quiet, gentle child.
When the dawn comes, you will rise at the lettin
if the Lord wills it, you will rise from the lettin.

When the dawn comes, you will rise from the lettin
if the Lord wills it, you will rise from the lettin.

The original text in German

Good evening, good night!
decorated with roses,
Decorated with nails
Slip below the deck.
Tomorrow morning, if God wills,
will you wake up again
Tomorrow morning, if God wills,
Will you wake up again? Good evening, good night!
guarded by angels,
They show in the dream
You Christkindleins tree.
Sleep well and sweet,
See in the dream 's paradise.
Sleep well and sweet,
See in the dream 's paradise.
