Comme Dieu rayonne aujourd'hui

Language: French (Français)

Comme Dieu rayonne aujourd'hui,
Comme il exulte, comme il fleurit
Parmi ces roses et ces fruits!

Comme il murmure en cette fontaine!
Ah! comme il chante en ces oiseaux...
Qu'elle est suave son haleine
Dans l'odorant printemps nouveau!

Comme il se baigne dans la lumière
Avec amour, mon jeune dieu!
Toutes les choses de la terre
Sont ses vêtements radieux.

How radiant God is

Language: English after the French (Français)

 How radiant God is today,
 how he exults, how he blossoms,
 in these flowers and fruits!
 
 How he murmurs in this stream!
 Ah, how he sings in these birds...
 How sweet his breath is
 in the fragrant new springtime!
 
 How he bathes in the light
 with Eros, my young god!
 All things on Earth
 are his radiant garments!
