Lyrics

Lullaby and good night,
With roses bedight,
With lilies o’er spread
Is baby’s wee bed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.
Lay thee down now and rest,
May thy slumber be blessed.

Lullaby and good night,
Thy mother’s delight,
Bright angels beside
My darling abide.
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shalt wake on my breast.
They will guard thee at rest,
Thou shalt wake on my breast.

 

“Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht” texte (Deutsch)

“Brahms’ Lullaby” German lyrics

Guten Abend, gute Nacht,
mit Rosen bedacht,
mit Näglein
besteckt,
schlupf′ unter die Deck!
Morgen früh, wenn Gott will,
wirst du wieder geweckt.
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.
Schlaf nun selig und süß,
schau im Traum ′s Paradies.

Song Info

“Brahms’ Lullaby” is a lullaby composed by Johannes Brahms (1833 – 1897) and was a gift to Bertha Faber, a composer’s friend and lover, on the occasion of the birth of her second son. It’s original title is “Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht” (“Good evening, good night”), sorted as Op. 49, No.4 and first published in 1868.

The first performance of the song was on 22 December 1869 in Vienna, where Clara Schumann, the wife of the composer Robert Schumann and Brahms’ friend also, was playing the piano.

The lyrics come from two different sources: the first verse from a collection of German folk poems and the second one is written by Georg Scherer (1824–1909) in 1849.

 

Teaching ideas & activities

Brahms’ Lullaby” might serve well in teaching the dotted quarter note.

With older children you can listen to the first movement of Brahms’ Symphony No. 2 in D major, where the composer uses variations on the melody, and try to recognize them through the composition.

For younger ones, just sing to them (or listen to the mp3 we offer to you) if you want to make them relax or sleep, as it is no coincidence that this tune is one of the most famous lullabies in the world.
