Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

333. Sainte Nuit

1 O nuit de paix! Sainte nuit!
Dans le ciel l'astre luit;
Dans les champs tout repose en paix.
Mais soudain dans l'air pur et frais,
Le brillant choeur des anges
Aux bergers apparaît.

2 O nuit de foi! Sainte nuit!
Les bergers sont instruits;
Confiants dans la voix des cieux,
Ils s'en vont adorer leur Dieu;
Et Jésus, en échange
Leur sourit radieux.

3 O nuit d'amour! Sainte nuit!
Dans l'étable, aucun bruit;
Sur la paille, est couché l'Enfant
Que la Vierge endort en chantant:
Il repose en ses langes
Son Jésus ravissant.

4 O nuit d'espoir! Sainte nuit!
L'espérance a relui:
Le Sauveur de la terre est né;
C'est à nous que Dieu l'a donné.
Célébrons ses louanges:
Gloire au Verbe incarné!
