1. Still, still, still, He sleeps this night so chill!
The Virgin's tender arms enfolding,
Warm and safe the Child are holding,
Still, still, still, He sleeps this night so chill!

2. Sleep, sleep, sleep, He lies in slumber deep
While angel hosts from heav'n come winging,
Sweetest songs of joy are singing,
Sleep, sleep, sleep, He lies in slumber deep.


1. Still, still, still, Wiel's Kindlein schlafen will!
Maria tut es nieder singen,
Ihre keusche Brust dar bringen,
Still, still, still, Wiel's Kindlein schlafen will!

2. Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf, Mein liabes Kindlein, schlaf!
Die Engel tuan sch√?¬∂ musizierren,
Bei dem Kindlein jubilieren,
Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf, Mein liabers Kindlein, schlaf!
