Veil of slumber
Wrap my child
And put him to sleep.
Sleep, sleep, my child,
Sleep softly,
And grow tall...

Smile upon my child.
Give him the dazzling colors
Of health and joyousness.
He shall be the most beautiful
And the happiest, of all.

Give him your light.
Let him shine with your brilliance.
Wish him long life,
And he will sing for you.

And you,
My friends, the spirits...
Make him a bed of flowers
That he may know the spring,
And the road to freedom.
