Sleep, dear one, sleep; day loiters in the west,
The bridegroom, night, is wooing her to rest;
Dream, loved one, dream, the day beyond the sea
Dreams of the night; so, darling, dream of me.
    Dream, darling, dream of me!

Sleep, dear one, sleep; day rests with all her charms,
And eager night enfolds her in his arms;
Dream, loved one, dream; as day of night in sleep,
So dream of me, whose love is wide and deep.
     Dream, darling, love is deep.
