Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Chanson traditionnelle anglaiseBring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella
Bring a torch, come swiftly and run
Christ is born, tell the folk of the village
Jesus is sleeping in His cradle
Ah, ah, beautiful is the Mother
Ah, ah, beautiful is her Son.
It is wrong when the Child is sleeping
It is wrong to talk so loud
Silence all as you gather around
Lest your noise should waken Jesus
Hush! hush! see how fast He slumbers
Hush! hush! see how fast He sleeps.
Hasten now, good folk of the village
Hasten now, the Christ-Child to see
You will find him asleep in the manger
Quietly come and whisper softly
Hush, hush, peacefully now He slumbers
Hush, hush, peacefully now He sleeps.
Softly to the little stable
Softly for a moment come
Look and see how charming is Jesus
How He is white, His cheeks are rosy
Hush! hush! see how the Child is sleeping
Hush! hush! see how He smiles in his dreams.
