Lo hadi aingürüa
(Sleep, little angel)

Basque lullaby

Lo hadi aingürüa amaren altzoan
Hire herri ejerra botz ezpain xokoan
Axolbean gütük bena ni trixtüra gogoan
Haro gaitza dük kanpoan ta aita itxasoan

Lo hadi lo maitea, ez egin nigarrik
Zeren nihaur aski nük haben dolügarri
Egik zelüko aingürüer herri batez batzarri
Pentsa dezen aitari jin dakigün sarri
Sleep, little angel, in your mother’s arms
Your land embraces you in its language
We are safe, but sad at the the thought
Of the storm outside, and your father at sea

Sleep, my darling, do not weep
There is no one else here to calm you
Angels from heaven, unite us
We think of your father out at sea
