1. Still, still, still.
The night is cold and chill!
The virgin's tender arms enfolding,
Warm and safe the Christ child holding.
Still, still, still,
The night is cold and chill.

Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf.
Mein liebes Kindlein, schlaf.
Die Engel tun schön musizieren,
Bei dem Kindlein jubilieren,
Schlaf, schlaf, schlaf,
Mein liebes Kindlein, schlaf!

2. Dream, dream, dream.
He sleeps, the Savior King.
While guardian angels watch beside Him,
Mary tenderly will guide Him.
Dream, dream, dream.
He sleeps, the Savior King.

Sheet Music to "Hush, Hush, Hush" Translation from O. Hardwig, ed., The Wartburg Hymnal (Chicago: Wartburg Publishing House, 1918), #116
