Sleep, O my darling, sleep,
Safe folded are the sheep;
The faint stars lie in the quiet sky,
The soft wind croons thy lullaby;
The leaves upon the linden tree
Are whispering tenderly to thee;
And close at hand lies Slumberland,
O, sleep, my darling, sleep.

Wake, O my darling, wake,
The sunbeams kiss the lake;
The seagulls fly to the eastern sky,
The happy ships are sailing by;
The birds upon the linden tree
Are calling merrily to thee;
The whole glad earth is rimmed with mirth
O, wake, my darling, wake.
