Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: (German) 'Hanschen klein'
Subject: Lyrics/melody: (German) 'Hanschen klein'
Having read the thread about the German Mudcat idea gave me the impetus to ask about this song, which an elderly lady at a personal care home where I was entertaining asked me to sing next time I visited there. She was able to write down a little of it for me. (There is an umlaut over the "a" in Hanschen which is not on my keyboard.)

Hanschen klein Ging allein In dir werte...

If I'm reading her writing correctly, those are the lines of this song which she sang as a child.

And now I turn it over to you for your help.
