Favorite Lullaby

My high school German teacher, Frau Boehm, taught us a lullaby she sang to her children. I have sung this lullaby to both of my children. It instantly calms them down. It does this mother's heart good when they ask me to sing it to them and are now trying to learn the lyrics themselves. 
Here is our special lullaby. It speaks of the beautiful evening and of the bells ringing - ding dong, ding dong:
O wie wohl ist mir am Abend,
Mir am Abend,
Wenn zur Ruh die Glocken läuten,
Glocken läuten:
Bim bam, bim bam, bim bam.

Yay! I understood the lyrics. I don't know that one, though. It's lovely you were able to pass that on for the two MMs.
