Beim Schlafengehen (Going to Sleep)

Richard Strauss / Hermann Hesse

Jessye Norman


(Now the day’s made me tired

such my passionate wish

the starry night to friendly

greet like a tired child.


Hands, cease your doing,

brow, forget all thought,

all my senses now

would sink into slumber.


And my soul, unguarded,

would soar about in free flight,

in the night’s magic circle


to live deep and thousandfold.)
