Nighttime Prayer: A child's evening prayer

Music and English lyrics by Juliet I. Spitzer from a translation by Judy and John Spitzer

For Mom and Pop, who showed us the solace of nighttime prayer

En Istenem
Jo Istenem
Lecsukodik mar a szemen
De a Tied mindig nyitva
Vigyazz a kis...
Mire a nap ujra felkel
Csokolhassuk egymast reggel

My God
My good God
My eyes are closing, but Yours are always open
Watch over all of my beloveds.
When the sun rises again
When the sun rises again
May we kiss each other
May we bless each other
When the sun rises again.
