Entre le bœuf et l'âne gris,
Dors, dors, dors le petit fils:
Mille anges divins,
mille séraphins,
Volent à l'entour
de ce grand Dieu d'amour.

Entre les deux bras de Marie,
Dors, dors, dors le fruit de vie:
Mille anges divins,
mille séraphins,
Volent à l'entour
de ce grand Dieu d'amour.

Entre les pastoureaux jolis,
Dors, dors, dors le petit fils:
Mille anges divins,
mille séraphins,
Volent à l'entour
de ce grand Dieu d'amour.

En ce beau jour solennel,
Dors, dors, dors l'Emmanuel:
Mille anges divins,
mille séraphins,
Volent à l'entour
de ce grand Dieu d'amour.

  1. Here betwixt ass and oxen mild,
  Sleep, sleep, sleep, my little child.
  Angels from on high
  Hover in the sky,
  Keeping watch above
  The incarnate God of love.

  2. Here in the crib, secure from harms,
  Sleep, sleep, in your mother's arms.
  Angels from on high
  Hover in the sky,
  Keeping watch above
  The incarnate God of love.

  3. Here betwixt rose and lily white,
  Sleep, sleep, sleep, my son tonight.
  Angels from on high
  Hover in the sky,
  Keeping watch above
  The incarnate God of love.

  4. On this fair night of holy joy,
  Sleep, sleep, sleep, my little boy.
  Angels from on high
  Hover in the sky,
  Keeping watch above
  The incarnate God of love.
