Les trois Prières

Language: French (Français)

À l'heure où notre esprit moins fier
S'incline comme un Roi prophète,
Je mets mon coeur dans un Pater,
Pour que ta volonté soit faite.

Ô mon cher oiseau bleu rêvé,
Enfant gardienne et bon génie,
Je mets mon coeur dans un Ave,
Pour que tu sois la plus bénie.

Et comme en une coupe d'eau
Se penche la fleur ranimée,
Je mets mon coeur dans un Credo,
Pour que tu sois la plus aimée.
