Dors, mon petit enfant, dors et rêve en silence
Au bruit du berceau.
Vois-tu, dans le grand chêne òu le vent le balance,
Le nid de l'oiseau?
Les nids sont des berceaux que les souffles d'orages
Font tomber parfois,
Et que les loups, la nuit, avec des cris sauvages,
Mangent dans les bois.

Mais toi, mon bel enfant, dors et rêve en silence
Au bruit du berceau.
Vois-tu, sur la mer bleue òu le vent le balance,
Le petit vaisseau?
La barque est un berceau que frappent les tempêtes
De leurs fouets d'éclairs,
Que de pauvres marins sont mangés par les bêtes
Dans le fond des mers!

Mais toi, mon bel enfant, dors et rêve en silence,
Au bruit du berceau.
