Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

50. Il est né

[Refrain:]
Il est né, le divin Enfant,
jouez hautbois rèsonnez musettes;
il est né, le divin Enfant,
chantons tous son avènement!

1 Depuis plus de quatre mille ans
nous le promettaient les prophètes:
depuis plus de quatre mille ans
nous attendions cet heureux temps! [Refrain]

3 Une étable est son logement,
un peu de paille est sa couchette.
Une étable est son logement,
pour un Dieu, quel abaissement! [Refrain]

3 Ô Jésus! Ô roi tout-puissant!
Tout petit enfant que vous êtes,
Ô Jésus! Ô roi tout-puissant!
Régnez sur nous entièrement. [Refrain]

[Refrain:]
He is born, little Child divine;
play on the reeds while the lutes are strumming.
He is born, little Child divine;
join to song to announce the day.

1 Through long ages of the past,
prophets have foretold his coming;
thru long ages of the past,
now the time has come at last! [Refrain]

2 O how lovely, O how pure
is this perfect child of heaven;
O how lovely, O how pure
gracious gift to humankind! [Refrain]

3 Lowly lodged in a stable poor,
laid on straw for his infant cradle.
Lowly lodged in a stable poor,
God come down to our mortal aid. [Refrain]

4 Jesus, Lord of all the world,
coming as a child among us,
