Text French

Noël nouvelet, Noël chantons ici
de votre gens, crions a Dieu merci
Chantons noël pour le Roi nouvelet
Noël nouvelet Noël chantons ici.
En Bethlehem Marie et Josephis
l'âne et le boeuf, l'enfant couché au lit
La crèche était au lieu d'un bercelet
Noël nouvelet Noël chantons ici.
L'etoile y vis qui la nuit eclairet
Qui d'Orient ou elle avait sorti.
En Bethlehem les trois Rois amenet
Noël nouvelet Noél chantons ici.
L'un portant l'or, l'autre la myrrhe aussi
l'autre l'encens qu'il faisait bon sentir.
Du paradis semblait le jardinet
Noël nouvelet Noël chantons ici.
En trente jours Noël fait acclompi.
En douze vers sera mon shant fini
En chacun jour j'en ai fait un couplet
Noël nouvelet Noël chantons ici.

Text English

Noël nouvelet, sing we a new Noël
Thank we now our God, and of His goodness tell;
Sing we Noël to greet the newborn King;
Noël nouvelet, a new Noël we sing!
Waking from my sleep, a vision came to me;
For before my eyes there stood a flow'ring tree,
Where on a bright red rosebud I did see.
Noël nouvelet, a new Noël sing we.
How my heart did glow, with inward joy divine!
For with rays of glory did the rosebud shine,
As when the sun doth blaze on break of day.
This new Noël sing we: Noël nouvelet!
Then a tiny bird ceased joyous song to say
Unto certain shepherds: "Haste you now away!
In Bethlehem the newborn Lamb you'll see."
Noël nouvelet, a new Noël sing we!
Mary and Joseph in Beth'lem they found,
Where the infant lay, with ox and ass around,
And for a crib, their manger full of hay.
This new Noël sing we: Noël nouvelet!
So, upon my bed, I saw these wonders all, "
Dreaming of a Child, an Infant Child so small:
Jesus of Naz'reth, called a King to be.
Noël nouvelet, a new Noël sing we!
