Le chant des bonnes

Language: French (Français)

Allons dormir il est sept heures  
La poule couvre ses petits  
En s’éloignant de nos demeures  
Les oiseaux regagnent leurs nids.  
La Vierge qu’avec vous je prie  
Aime lorsqu’on sait obéir  
Allons dormir pour plaire à la Vierge Marie  
Mon petit ange, allons dormir,  
allons dormir, allons dormir.  
Allons dormir et votre bonne  
Près de vous veillera toujours  
Du sommeil pur que Dieu vous donne  
Elle invoquera le secours.  
La Vierge qu’avec vous je prie  
Aussitôt fera grandir  
Allons dormir pour plaire à la Vierge Marie  
Mon petit ange, allons dormir,  
Allons dormir, allons dormir.  
Endormez-vous doux et tranquille  
Reposez-vous petit agneau  
Ne parlez pas, soyez docile  
Et demain vous serez bien beau.  
La Vierge que pour vous je prie  
Vous rendra les songes bien doux  
Endormez-vous pour plaire à la Vierge Marie  
Mon petit ange, endormez-vous,  
Endormez-vous, endormez-vous.
