And will he not come again?

Language: English

And will he not come again?
And will he not come again?
No, no, he is dead:
Go to thy death-bed:
He never will come again.
His beard was as white as snow,
All flaxen was his poll:
He is gone, he is gone,
And we cast away moan:
God ha' mercy on his soul!
And of all Christian souls, I pray God. God be wi' ye.

Et ne reviendra‑t‑il pas ?

Language: French (Français) after the English

Et ne reviendra-t-il pas ?
Et ne reviendra-t-il pas ?
Non ! non ! il est mort.
Va à ton lit de mort.
Il ne reviendra jamais.

Sa barbe était blanche comme neige,
Toute blonde était sa tête.
Il est parti ! il est parti !
Et nous perdons nos cris.
Dieu ait pitié de mon âme !

Et de toutes les âmes chrétiennes ! Je prie Dieu. Dieu soit avec vous !
