1. Lullaby, Jesu, my pearl and my dear one.
Lullaby, Jesu, my sweet, precious Son.
There, up above You, God's angels are winging;
They, too, do love You; o'er You they are watching.

2. Lullaby, Jesu, like stars are Your eyes, --
Lullaby, Jesu, now hush Your low cries. --
'Round You the kind beasts and dear birds are standing;
They, too, do love You; o'er You they are watching.

3. Lullaby, Jesu, my flower of beauty,
Lullaby, Jesu, Thy Mother shall rock Thee.
Near You the shepherds in rev'rence are kneeling;
They, too, do love You; o'er You they are watching.
