Nini la tibgix izjed
(Sleep and do not cry)

Maltese lullaby

Nini la tibgix izjed
Nini Gesu bambin
Haliih ghalina l'biki
Ghax ahna midimbin

Ejjew ejjew ja angli
Mis'sema mija mija
Hdejn Alla li halaqkom
Bambin gewwa l'fisqija

Ejjew taraw b'ghajnejkom
Lil dan allakbir tal-hniena
Bambin sabih u helu
Innini gol-benniena

Hallu ja rghajja, hallu
Il-merhla tan-naghgiet
Tibzghux min jindukrahom
Hemm l'anjli tas-smewwiet
Sleep and do not cry
Sleep baby Jesus
Leave the crying to us
For we are sinners

Come, come you angels
From the sky in large numbers
Near to the God who made you
Now a baby in a manger

Come and see for yourself
A God full of mercy
Now a beautiful and cute baby
Asleep in a manger

Oh you shepherds
Leave your flocks
Do not fear
The angels will watch them
