O peaceful night! so calm and still,
the moonlight sleeps on vale and hill
And soft the brooklet hurries by
with murm'rous flow of lullaby
Till life awakes a down the dale
sweet music of the nightingale
O peaceful night! Stay with us, stay
O peaceful night, o dream of day
Stay with us, stay
O stay, peaceful night
O with us stay

O mystic night, in woodland shade
Thou know'st a fairy haunted glade
where laughing elves with tiny feet
go tripping through the meadowsweet
Till in the silent sky afar
Again shines forth the morning star

O mystic night
Stay, with us stay
O peaceful night, o dream of day,stay
Stay with us, o stay!O stay
Peaceful night, o with us stay
O peaceful night, stay with us, stay!

¡Oh, noche serena! Tan calma y quieta,
La luz de la luna duerme sobre el valle y la colina
Y suave el arroyo corre / se agita
con susurrante fluir de canción de cuna
Hasta que la vida despierta en el valle

¡Dulce música del ruiseñor
¡Oh, noche serena, quédate con nosotros!
¡Oh, noche serena,
oh, sueño del día
¡Quédate con nosotros, quédate!

Oh, quédate noche serena,
con nosotros quédate,
Oh, noche mística,
en la sombra del bosque
tú conociste un claro encantado por las hadas
donde duendes risueños, de diminutos pies
bailan por la hierba
Hasta que en el silencioso cielo, a la distancia
nuevamente brilla el lucero del alba
Oh, noche mística
Con nosotros quédate
Oh, noche serena, o sueño del día
con nosotros quédate
