Que le [jour]1 me dure!
Passé loin de toi,
toute la nature
n'est plus rien pour moi.

Le plus vert bocage,
[quand]2 tu n'y viens pas,
n'est qu'un lieu sauvage,
pour moi, sans appas.

Hélas! si je passe
Un jour sans te voir,
Je cherche ta trace
Dans mon désespoir...

Quand je t'ai perdue,
Je reste à pleurer,
Mon âme éperdue
Est près d'expirer.

Le coeur me palpite
Quand j'entends ta voix,
Tout mon sang s'agite
Dès que je te vois;

Ouvres-tu la bouche,
Les cieux vont s'ouvrir...
Si ta main me touche,
Je me sens frémir.

Maman, le gros Bébé t'appelle, il a bobo:
Tu dis que je suis beau, quand je veux bien faire dodo.
Je veux de confitures, c'est du bon nanan;
Les groseilles sont mûres, donne-m'en, j'en veux, maman,
Je veux du bon nanan, j'ai du bobo, maman.
Atchi! Papa, maman, ca-ca.

Bébé voudrait la chanson du sapeur
Dans Barbe-bleue, un air qui fait bien peur.
Maman, ta voix si douce en chantant ça,
Enfoncerait Schneider et Thérésa.
Atchi! Pipi, maman, papa, ca-ca.

Ma bonne, en me berçant, m'appelle son bijou,
Un diable, un sapajou, si j'aime mieux faire joujou.
Quand je ne suis pas sage, on me promet le fouet!
Moi, je fais du tapage, le moyen réussit bien.
Je veux du bon nanan, j'ai du bobo, maman.
Atchi! Papa, maman, ca-ca.

2 omitted by Howells.
3 Rossini adds here: "Requiescant in pace. Amen."

Britten's version is divided between the chorus and the boys' chorus this way:

Chorus
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine:
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

Boys' Chorus
Te decet hymnus, Deus in Sion:
et tibi reddetur votum in Jerusalem;
exaudi orationem meam, 
ad te omnis caro veniet.

Chorus
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine:
et lux perpetua luceat eis.

È notte, e tutto addormentato è il mondo.
Sola io veglio, ed aspetto
Che un destrier passi,
Che una tromba chiami.
Ascolto, e nulla sento
Se non son l'acque
E il mormorar del vento.
Muta ogni cosa e afflitta
Come l'ora che segue alla sconfitta.

O patria! O Re!
Novella un'aita verrà.
L'Onnipossente dal gregge
Suscitò la pastorella.
Vadasi. O dolce mio loco natìo,
Dolce famiglia, o campi, o selve, addio.

O mia madre, e tu frattanto
La tua figlia cercherai,
Affannata chiamerai
E nessun risponderà.
Ma fra poco d'alte imprese
Verrà un suon conforto al pianto:
Ogni madre, ogni francese
La mia madre invidierà.
La mia madre, e tu frattanto
La tua figlia cercherai,
Affannata chiamerai
E nessun risponderà.

Eppur piange. Ah! repente
Qual luce balenò nell'oriente,
Non è il sole che s'alza,
Sei la mia vision, io ti conosco.
Più grande che non suole
Empie il ciel fulminando e mi fa segno:
Angiol di morte, tu mi chiami, io vegno.

Ah, la fiamma che t'esce dal guardo
Già m'ha toccà, m'investe, già m'arde.
Presto un brando, marciamo pugnando.
Viva il Re, la vittoria è con me.
Guida i forti la vergine al campo,
Tra i leoni l'agnello s'avventa.
Non han scampo, il Signor li spaventa.
Viva il Re, la vittoria è con me.

Corre la gioia di core in core.
Ma, queta e timida fra lo stupore,
Chi se' domandano, che il Re salvò?
Ah! vinse la vergine che in Dio sperò.
Presto un brando, marciamo pugnando.
Viva il Re, la vittoria è con me.
