1. Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
Der Vater hüt't die Schaf,
die Mutter schüttelt 's Bäumelein,
da fällt herab ein Träumelein.
Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!

2. Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
Am Himmel ziehn die Schaf,
die Sternlein sind die Lämmelein,
der Mond der ist das Schäferlein.
Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!

3. Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
So schenk ich dir ein Schaf,
mit einer goldnen Schelle fein,
das soll dein Spielgeselle sein.
Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!

4. Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
Und bläk nicht wie ein Schaf,
sonst kommt des Schäfers Hündelein
und beißt mein böses Kindelein.
Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!

5. Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
Geh fort und hüt die Schaf,
geh fort, du schwarzes Hündelein,
und weck mir nicht mein Kindelein!
Schlaf, Kindlein schlaf!
