It Soon Will Be Evening         It Soon Will Be Evening MP3 (1,0 MB)
Tune: "Es wird schon glei dumper", 
Austrian folk song from the Brixental in North Tirol

It soon will be evening,
it soon will be night.
You go now to slumber
till morning is bright.

The Gods all are guarding you,
your dreams and your sleep.
They love you as I do,
you´re safe in their keep.

Sleep well! Sleep well!
My sweet child, sleep well!
My sweet child, sleep well!

It soon will be evening,
it soon will be night.
My song is your blanket,
my love is your light.

The Gods all are with you,
keep watch over you.
So sleep now, my darling,
till morning is new.

Sleep well! Sleep well!
My sweet child, sleep well!
My sweet child, sleep well!
