Un Flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle

Representative Text

1 Un flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle,
un flambeau, courons au berceau!
C’est Jésus, bonnes gens du hameau,
le Christ est né, Marie appelle.
Ah! Ah! Ah! Que la mère est belle,
Ah! Ah! Ah! Que l’Enfant est beau!


1 Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella,
bring a torch and quickly run.
Christ is born, good folk of the village,
Christ is born and Mary's calling,
Ah! Beautiful is the mother,
Ah! Ah! beautiful is her child.

2 Come and see within the stable,
come and see the Holy one,
come and see the holy Jesus,
brown his brow, his cheeks are rosy.
Hush! Hush! Quietly now he slumbers,
Hush! Hush! Quietly now he sleeps.
