Cradle Song is the common name for a number of children's lullabies with similar lyrics, the original of which was Johannes Brahms's Wiegenlied: Guten Abend, gute Nacht ("Good evening, good night"), Op. 49, No. 4, published in 1868 and widely known as Brahms's Lullaby The lyrics of the first verse are from a collection of German folk poems called Des Knaben Wunderhorn[1] and the second stanza was written by Georg Scherer (1824–1909) in 1849. The lullaby's melody is one of the most famous and recognizable in the world, used by countless parents to sing their babies to sleep.[2] The Lullaby was dedicated to Brahms's friend, Bertha Faber, on the occasion of the birth of her second son. Brahms had been in love with her in her youth and constructed the melody of the Wiegenlied to suggest, as a hidden counter-melody, a song she used to sing to him.[1] The lullaby was first performed in public on 22 December 1869 in Vienna by Louise Dustmann (singer) and Clara Schumann (piano).[3][4]

LyricsEdit

Roses whisper "good night"
'Neath silvery light, 
Asleep in the dew 
They hide from our view; 
When the dawn peepeth through 
God will wake them and you
When the dawn peepeth through 
God will wake them and you

Slumber sweetly my dear, 
For the angels are near 
To watch over you 
The silent night through 
And to bear you above 
To the dreamland of love 
And to bear you above 
To the dreamland of love
