Dormu, Savanto mia

Full Text

1. Dormu, Savanto mia,
Sur la fojna lito;
En la nokto steloklara
Ĝoje kantas anĝelaro
Pri la Divizito.

2. Dormu, Savanto mia,
Sur la fojna lito;
Iam venos agonio
En ĝardeno olivarba;

3. Dormu, Savanto mia,
Sine de Maria.
Nun ŝafistoj vin adoras,
La patrina koro ĝojas,
Paco estu via.

4. Dormu, Savanto mia,
Bebo de Maria,
Dornkronota kaj mokota,
Krucumota, lancpikota;
Fine — venko via!
