Evening Song

            Esti Dal : Evening Song Composed by Zoltan Kodaly, 1938. (Hungarian)

English translation of "Esti Dal",
Evening darkness overtook me near the woods;
I have put my coat under my head as a pillow
I have put my hands together
To pray to the Lord, like this: 

Oh, my Lord, give me a place to sleep,
I am weary with wandering,
With walking around and hiding,
With living on foreign land. 

May Lord give me a good night,
May he send me a holy angel,
May he encourage our hearts' dreams,
May he give us a good night.
