Sleep, Baby, Sleep         Sleep, Baby, Sleep MP3
Tune: "Schlaf, Kindlein, schlaf", German lullaby

Sleep, baby, sleep,
You´re in the Aesir´s keep.
Old Mani sheds his softest beams,

Frigga sends you pleasant dreams,
Sleep, baby, sleep!

Sleep, baby, sleep,
The clouds are grazing sheep.
The stars are twinkling in the sky,
Odin watches with his eye.

Sleep, baby, sleep!

Sleep, baby, sleep,
Sleep safely, well and deep.
The Gods are watching over you,
Mom and Dad are watching too.
Sleep, baby, sleep!
