Hush thee, sweet baby,
Hush thee to sleep!
Dark though thy way be
Over the deep.

Jove is not wearied
Watching the waves;
Neptune and Nereid,
All are his slaves.

Neptune is swinging
Thee on his breast;
Nereids are singing
Thee to thy rest.

Lights without number
Shine in the skies;
Night in thy slumber
Veileth thine eyes.

Morning will meet thee
Safe on the shore;
Princes shall greet thee:
"Wander no more!"

Hush thee, sweet baby,
Hush thee to sleep!
Dark though thy way be
Over the deep!
