Pardon, goddess of the night

Language: English

Pardon, goddess of the night,
Those that slew thy virgin knight;
For the which, with songs of woe,
Round about her tomb they go.
Midnight, assist our moan;
Help us to sigh and groan,
Heavily, heavily:
Graves, yawn, and yield your dead,
Till death be uttered,
Heavily, heavily.


Translation(s): FRE FRE

Pardonne, déesse de la nuit

Language: French (Français) after the English

Pardonne, déesse de la nuit,
À ceux qui tuèrent ta vierge-chevalière :
En expiation, avec des chants douloureux,
Ils viennent autour de sa tombe.
Minuit, fais écho à nos lamentations !
Aide-nous à soupirer et à gémir,
  Tristement, tristement.
Baille, tombeau, et laisse aller la morte,
Jusqu’à ce que l’arrêt de mort soit prononcé,
  Divinement, divinement.
