1 Child, you know my name,
And your sweet gaze beckons to me.
It says to me: simple abandonment.
I want to steer your little boat.
 
2 With your little child's hand,
O what wonder!
With your little child's voice,
You calm the roaring waves
And the wind!...
 
3 If you want to rest
While the storm is raging,
Let your little blond head
Rest on my heart.
 
4 How delightful your smile is
While you're asleep!...
With my sweetest song
I always want to rock you tenderly,
Fair child!
