Lyrics

Sung in Yiddish

Sleep my little bird,
Close your little eye,
Sleep my child, sleep!
Close your little eye,
My dear little bird.

A good angel
Should be your guardian
From today ‘til tomorrow morning.
With his wings
Over your cradle
He quietly covers you.

Sleep in peace,
Know of no sorrows.
Sleep my dear child.
Sleep in peace,
Know of no sorrows,
Sleep well and awake in good health. 

shlof mayn feygele,
makh tzu dayn eygele,
shlof mayn kind, shlof.
makh tzu dayn eygele,
mayn tayere feygele.

a malakh a guter
zol zayn dayn hiter
fun haynt biz morgn fri. 
mit zayn fligele
iber dayn vigele
dekt er shtil dikh tsu!

shlof in fridn,
veys fun kayn leydn,
shlof mayn tayer kind.
shlof in fridn,
veys fun kayn leydn,
shlof zikh oys gezunt.
