Chant de délivrance

Language: French (Français)

Pour la grâce de mon ami mon coeur
Se consume en amour craintif,
Je supplie Dieu pour qu'il apaise ma douleur.
Si j'appelle il m'entendra lui
Mon épée, mon bouclier, ma cuirasse
Tout mon être s'élance vers lui.
Et je prierai le jour et la nuit
Pourqu'il apporte la consolation à tout son peuple,
Alors, j'oublierai toutes mes douleurs
Et je me mettrai au service de Dieu...
Vois Isaac ne désespère plus
Ses ennemis s'enfuient devant lui.
La bénédiction de Dieu
Me protège et me soutient.
L'envoyé de Dieu viendra.
Oui, le voici,
Il apportera à mon deuil le soulagement que je demandais,
Sa droite me soutiendra.
Tous les jours et toutes les nuits
Et déjà voici la délivrance.

Song of Deliverance

Language: English after the French (Français)

 For mercy for my friend, my heart
 is consumed with fearful love. 
 I beg God to calm my pain. 
 If I call, he will hear me,
 my sword, my shield and my breastplate. 
 My whole being is drawn to him, 
 and I will pray night and day
 that he may bring consolation to all his people. 
 Then will I forget all my pain 
 and will I serve God. 
 See, Isaac is no longer in despair. 
 His enemies flee before him. 
 The blessing of God 
 protects and sustains me. 
 The one sent from God will come. 
 Yes, here he is. 
 He will bring to my mourning the ease which I asked for. 
 His right hand will uphold me, 
 all the days and all the nights. 
 See! Deliverance is already here.
