Lantern songs

Here are two songs for the lantern walk, easy for everyone to learn. Jana recorded them for us so we can learn the melody. Check back soon and we’ll have the audio posted. And here are the lantern song lyrics in printable form. Watch our blog for a story about Jana’s lantern walk memories from Germany.

I walk with my lantern

I’m walking with my lantern, 
My lantern walks with me. 
Above the stars are shining, 
Below are shining we.The night is cold and dark and dim
Ra bimbel, ra bumbel, ra bumm.

Ich geh mit meiner Laterne
Und meine Laterne mit mir.
Dort oben leuchten die Sterne
Und unten leuchten wir.
Mein Licht ist aus,
Ich geh nach Haus,
Rabimmel, rabammel, rabum.


Jana’s childhood lantern song

Laterne, Laterne
Sonne, Mond, und Sterne!
Brenne auf mein Licht,
brenne auf mein Licht,

aber nur meine liebe Laterne nicht.

Sun, Moon and Stars!
Burn, my light,
burn, my light,
but not my dear lantern.
