“Do you know, how many stars stand” is a German lullaby and popular evening song. The lyrics stem from the evangelical priest and poet Johann Wilhelm Hey (1789–1854), who in 1837 published these lines for the first time. The melody is recorded back in 1818. An English version of this song is from Henry William Dulcken (1832-1894), which is not just a translation but similar version of the original.
Lyrics to “Do you know, how many stars stand”
Can you count the stars that brightly
twinkle in the midnight sky?
Can you count the clouds, so lightly
o’er the meadows floating by?
God, the Lord, doth mark their number,
with His eyes that never slumber;
He hath made them every one,
He hath made them every one.
Can you count the wings now flashing
in the sunshine’s golden light?
Can you count the fishes splashing
in the cooling waters bright?
God, the Lord, a name hath given,
to all creatures under Heaven;
He hath named them every one,
He hath named them every one.
Do you know how many children
rise each morning blithe and gay?
Can you count their jolly voices,
singing sweetly day by day?
God hears all the happy voices,
in their merry songs rejoices;
and He loves them, every one
and He loves them, every one.
