Do You Know How Many Stars are There Do You Know... MP3 (1 MB) by me
                                                               Do You Know  (1,9 MB) Voice&piano by Analemma
Do you know how many stars are there
in the blue sky of the night?
Do you know how many clouds so fair
fly over Midgard´s height?
Our Gods do know their number,
none is missing, we may slumber.
Do you know how many stars are there
in the blue sky of the night?

Do you know how many birds there are
singing sweetly in the trees?
Do you know how many fish there are
swimming in the seven seas?
Our Gods do know their number,
none is missing, we may slumber.
Do you know how many birds there are
singing sweetly in the trees?

Do you know how many children are
sleeping safe and sound tonight?
And tomorrow rising happily
in the morning´s golden light?
Our Gods do love them everyone,
and each to them is dear and known.
And they know and love you too, my child,
and they know and love you too.
