What are some soothing songs

The most beautiful lullabies for babies and children

The night has a special magic. Children love to be accompanied to sleep by their parents with a bedtime ritual.

Singing lullabies is part of the evening routine for some families. Often times, parents instinctively begin to sing or hum when their baby is crying. For children and babies, the voice of mom and dad is the greatest of all. In combination with the melody of a lullaby, it has a calming effect and soothes the little mind. The common evening ritual also strengthens the relationship with your child. Helping your baby fall asleep by singing - that's wonderful.

Children's lullabies are often constant melodically, monotonous and mostly use simple rhymes. This has a beneficial effect on your bunny, especially if it suffers from being startled at night. Sleep problems can become a heavy burden for the whole family. Perhaps singing lullabies can make difficult moments a little easier and sweetener for you.

And don't be shy when singing: Usually only your baby listens and is happy about your loving voice. Your child does not expect musical excellence!

So that you don't have to search long for children's lullabies, we have put together the most beautiful lullaby songs for babies and children. You can find most of the children's songs set to music on YouTube, often with text. So you can easily recall the melodies. Have fun and enjoy singing with your sweet darling!

Good evening Good Night

Good evening Good Night is actually a well-known German poem from the 19th century. In the setting by Johannes Brahms under the title Lullaby (in English-speaking countries also as Brahms' Lullaby known) it became one of the most famous lullabies.

Good evening, good night, covered with roses, studded with nails, slip under the deck: Tomorrow morning, if God wills, you will be woken up again, tomorrow morning, if God wills, you will be woken up again.

Good evening, good night, guarded by angels, they'll show you Christkindin's tree in a dream. Sleep now blissfully and sweetly, look in the dream 's paradise, sleep now blissfully and sweetly, look in the dream' s paradise.

Sleep kid sleep

The first stanza of the lullaby Sleep kid sleep should be known to most. This lullaby dates from the 17th century. In contrast to today, only the first stanza existed back then. The other verses were added at the beginning of the 19th century and tell of a dream world full of security.

Sleep kid sleep! The father tends the sheep, the mother shakes the tree, a little dream falls down. Sleep kid sleep!

Sleep kid sleep! The sheep move in the sky. The stars are the lambs, the moon is the shepherd. Sleep kid sleep!

Sleep kid sleep! So I'll give you a sheep with a golden bell, that will be your playmate. Sleep kid sleep!

Evening silence

This rhyme, which can also be sung as a 4-part canon, is short and sweet. The text is by Fritz Jöde and the melody by Otto Laub.

Evening silence everywhere, only the nightingale by the stream, sings its way plaintively and softly through the valley.

Do you know how many stars there are

The tune too Do you know how many stars there are comes from an old folk song. The Protestant pastor and poet Wilhelm Hey published this good night song in German for the first time in 1837. Since then it has accompanied many children to their sweet sleep.

Do you know how many little stars there are in the blue sky? Do you know how many clouds go far over the world? The Lord God has counted them so that he is not lacking in the whole great number.

Do you know how many little mosquitoes play in the hot sunshine, how many little fish also cool off in the bright flood of water? The Lord God called them by name that they all came to life, that they are now so happy.

Do you know how many children get out of bed early so that they are happy during the day without worry and trouble? God in heaven has his pleasure and pleasure in everyone; knows you too and loves you.

the moon has risen

the moon has risen is a classic among lullabies and was first published as a poem by the German poet Matthias Claudius (1740-1815). The melody for it was later set to music by great composers such as Max Reger or Franz Schubert.

The moon has risen, the golden stars shine bright and clear in the sky; the forest is black and silent, and the white mist rises wonderfully from the meadows.

How is the world so quiet and in the twilight envelope so cozy and so sweet, as a quiet chamber where you should sleep through the day's woes and forget!

Do you see the moon up there? It is only half visible, and yet it is round and beautiful! So are some things that we confidently laugh at because our eyes do not see them.

We proud human beings are very poor sinners and do not know much at all; we spin webs of air and seek many arts and get further from the goal.

God, let us see your salvation, trust in nothing perishable, do not rejoice in vanity; let us become simple-minded and be pious and happy before you here on earth like children!

You want to finally grieve from this world to take us through a gentle death! And, if you have taken us, let us come to heaven, you our Lord and our God!

So then, ye brethren, lie down in the name of God. The evening breath is cold. Spare us, God, punishments and let us sleep peacefully and our sick neighbors too.

Tired I'm going to rest

Tired I'm going to rest is considered the lyrical pearl among traditional lullabies. The text for this children's and evening prayer was written in the 19th century by the German poet Luise Maria Hensel.

I'm tired, go to rest, close both eyes. Father, let your eyes be over my bed.

Have I done wrong today, don't look at it, dear God, your grace and Jesus' blood make good all harm.

All who are related to me, God, let rest in your hand, all people, big and small, should be commanded to you.

Sick hearts send calm, wet eyes close. Let the moon stand in the sky and look at the silent world.

Sandman - The little flowers, they sleep

This good night song has been accompanying children to sleep since 1840. The text of the lullaby comes from Anton Wilhelm von Zuccalmaglio (1803-1869). The melody goes back to an old folk song from 1697. Due to the soulful lyrics and the already familiar melody, it quickly became popular and a popular catchy tune.

The little flowers, they have long been sleeping in the moonlight, they nod their heads on their stalks. The blossom tree shakes, it purrs like in a dream; sleep, sleep, you my child.

The birds, they sang so sweetly in the sunshine, they have gone to rest in their little nest; the cricket in the ear of wheat, it alone makes itself known. Sleep, sleep, you my child.

Sandman creeps up and looks through the little window to see if there is still a lover in bed; and wherever he found a child, he strews sand in his eyes: Sleep, sleep, you my child.

Sandman out of the room, my heart is sleeping well, it is already tightly locked to its peep eyes. Tomorrow it will shine so piously for me. Sleep, sleep, you my child.

Little children, please go to sleep

Little children, please go to sleep tells in a beautiful text about nature, which also goes to sleep and thus accompanies the child to sleep. It is not known who wrote or composed this song. We only know that it originally came from the Czech Republic and was passed down orally.

My children, fall asleep because the stars are coming. And the moon is already swimming again. Eia Wieglein, Wieglein mine, go to sleep, children, fall asleep!

My children, go to sleep, for the night is falling. And the wind hums the child's lullabies. Eia Wieglein, Wieglein mine, go to sleep, children, go to sleep.

My child, go to sleep, the bird flies from the tree. Fly quickly to my child, sing to him in dreams. Eia Wieglein, Wieglein mine, go to sleep, children, go to sleep.

Who has the most beautiful sheep?

Who has the most beautiful sheep? is an imaginative lullaby. It tells the story of the moon that shepherds its sheep: the stars. The well-known German poet August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben (1798-1874) created this lullaby in 1830. The memorable melody was composed by Johann Friedrich Reichardt (1752-1814).

Who has the most beautiful sheep, that's the dear moon that lives behind our trees in the sky above.

Late in the evening, when everyone wants to sleep, he comes out of his house in the sky quietly and quietly.

Then he grazes the sheep in his blue corridor; for all the white stars are just his little sheep.

They don't hurt each other, one likes the other, and there are sisters and brothers up there star after star.

And if I should bring you one, you must never scream, you have to be friendly like the sheep and like their shepherds.

Did you know that singing songs is not only good for your baby or child, but also for you? It has been scientifically proven that singing has a positive effect on the psyche and strengthens health and the immune system. So if you don't want to be infected by your little one's common teething troubles, do something good for yourself and your sweetheart: start singing!
