A beautiful Irish lullaby I found in the Dublin Traditional Music Archives. Also recorded by Maura O'Connell and several others.

Lyrics

Curfá:
Dún do shúile a rún mo chroí
A chuid den tsaol is a ghrá liom. .
Dún do shúile a rún mo chroí
Is gheobhair féirín amárach.

Chorus:
Close your eyes treasure of my heart
My only interest and my love
Close your eyes treasure of my heart
And a trinket will be gotten tomorrow.

Beidh do fhear ag tiocht gan mhoill ón g'cnoc
Agus cearca fraoch ina lámh leis.
O codhladh go ciúin a rún mo rún
Agus gheobhair féirín amárach.
Curfá

Your father will be coming without delay from the hill
And wild hens in his hand.
Oh sleep calmly, oh treasure, my treasure
And a trinket will be gotten tomorrow.
Chorus


Tá an Samhradh ag triall le grian is teas
agus duilliúr glas ar phrataí .
Tá an ghaoth ag tiocht go fírinneach
is gheobhaimid iasc amárach.
Curfá

Summer is coming with sunshine and warmth
And the green leaves on the potatoes
The wind is coming up strong
And we will get a fish tomorrow.
Chorus
