BRING A TORCH, JEANETTE, ISABELLA
Un flambeau, Jeanette, Isabelle --
Un flambeau! Courons au berceau!
C'est l’enfant, bonnes gens du harneau.
L’enfant est né; Mama appelle!
Que la mère est belle,
Ah! Que l'enfant est beau!
Bring a torch, Jeanette Isabella.
Bring a torch, come swiftly and run.
A child is born, tell the folk of the village,
Baby is sleeping in his cradle
Beautiful is the mother
Beautiful is her son.
Hasten now, good folk of the village.
Hasten now, the baby to see
You will find him asleep in his cradle,
Quietly come and whisper softly,
Peacefully now he slumbers
Peacefully now he sleeps.
