1. Bring a torch, Jeannette, Isabella, Bring a torch, to the cradle run! It is Jesus, good folk of the village, Christ is born and Mary's calling: Ah! ah! beautiful is the mother, Ah! ah! beautiful is her Son!

2. 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.

3. Softly to the little stable, Softly for a moment come; Look and see how charming is Jesus, How He is warm, His cheeks are rosy! Hush! hush! see how the Child is sleeping; Hush! hush! see how He smiles in dreams.
