Text

Entre le boeuf et l'âne gris
Dort, dort, dort le petit fils,
Mille anges divins,
Mille séraphins,
Volent à l'entour de ce Dieu d'amour.

Entre les deux bras de Marie
Dort, dort, le Fruit de le Vie,
Mille anges...

Entre les roses et les lys
Dort, dort, dort le petit fils,
Mille anges...

En ce beau jour solennel
Dort, dort, dort l'Emmanuel,
Mille anges...

(traditional French carol)

Between the ox and the grey donkey
Sleeps the little son,
A thousand divine angels,
A thousand seraphim
Fly around the God of love.

In Mary's arms
Sleeps the fruit of life,
A thousand divine angels...

Between the roses and lilies,
Sleeps the little son,
A thousand divine angels...

On this blessed holy day
Sleeps the little son,
A thousand divine angels...

(translation: Paul Ayres)
