Good evening, good night,
May your slumber be light,
May your dreams be deep
As the Gods watch your sleep.
In the morning you´ll rise
and be healthy and wise,
In the morning you´ll rise
and be healthy and wise.

Good evening, good night,
As Mani shines bright,
Close your eyes now and rest,
May your slumber be blest.
In the morning´s fair skies
you will see Sunna rise,
In the morning´s fair skies
you will see Sunna rise.

Tune: "Wiegenlied, Opus 49 Number 4" by Johannes Brahms (1833 - 1897), German composer.
First written as an instrumental symphony, the vocal version was later made by Brahms for Bertha Faber,
a young mother who wanted a new song to sing to her first newborn child.
The vocal version´s title "Guten Abend, Gute Nacht" translates as "Good Evening, Good Night."
