Deir in De is a Gaelic lullaby from ancient Ireland.

The beautiful melody is coupled with simple, descriptive lyrics: “The mother tells her child of ordinary things familiar in the countryside...the cows will be driven to pasture and the child will mind them...the sun will set, the moon will rise, and they will return at the close of day.”

There are three statements of the melody, with a short interlude between the second and third statements.
