Schlaf, Kindlein, schlaf - German Children's Songs - Germany - Mama Lisa's World: Children's Songs and Rhymes from Around the World  - Intro Image

Notes

According to German Wikipedia: The earliest known version of this lullaby dates back to 1611 and only had the 1st verse. The melody that's now sung was written by Johann Friedrich Reichardt (1781). It was based on a folk tune.

Haleigh sent the following recording with the note:

"I would like to share an mp3 of Schlaf, Kindlein Schlaf that I have recorded. It has a little bit of a different melody than most recordings of the tune, probably as a result of the song being handed down several generations. This version of the song has been passed down to me from my grandparents."
