This graceful air was taken by the German composer Max Reger and transformed in 1912 into an art song, "The Virgin's Slumber Song," or "Maria Wiegenlied." Edward Teschemacher supplied an English translation of this lovely song, which echoes part of "Joseph Dearest, Joseph Mild": the Virgin Mary singing to her Baby while He sleeps.


Mary sits in the rosegrove
And rocks her child Jesus,
Softly through the leaves
Blows a warm summer wind.

At her feet sings
A colorful little bird :
Sleep, child, my sweet,
Just go to sleep!

Lovely is your smile,
Lovely is your joy in slumber,
Lay your tired little head
Against your mother’s breast!
Sleep, child, my sweet,
Just go to sleep!
