Un enfant du ciel

Language: French (Français)

Noel, noel, noel, noel, noel...
Un enfant du Ciel nous est ne,
Un enfant Dieu nous a donné,
Qui d'amour infinie
Nous redonne la vie.

Le verbe divin s'est fait chair,
Et veut tout orgueil retrancher,
Pour nous faire oongnoistre
Qu'il est nostre vray maistre.

Noel, noel, noel, noel, noel...
Pour nous il doit souffrir la mort.
Et nous remettre dans le port,
Hors des aguets funebres
Du Prince des tenebres.

Prions-le tous devotieux,
Qu’il nous face habiter les Cieux,
Fermez par nostre Pere,
Et r‘ouvers par sa mere.

Noel, noel, noel, noel, noel.
