You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Aimons, rêvons

Language: French (Français)

Aimons! Rêvons! Que nos vois se répondent!
Aimons! Rêvons! En nous serrant la main.
Ah! parle! ta voix me pénêtre!
Parle encore! Je sens tout mon être
Frémir d'amour à tes accents!
Mon coeur par toi semble renaître!
Et je vois dans tes yeux
Resplendir la clarté des cieux!
Ah! parle! ta voix me pénêtre!
Parle encore! Je sens tout mon être
Frémir et renaître.
L'heure est brève,
Aimons nous
Rêver est doux!
Et l'amour est un rêve!

Aimer! Rêver! Sans aimer pourquoi vivre?
Rêver! Aimer! C'est la loi du bonheur.
Le rêve si doux à poursuivre,
De son charme tous deux nous enivre,
Berçant l'espoir dans notre coeur.
En ton amour je crois renaître,
Et je vois dans tes yeux
Resplendir la clarté des cieux!
Tu parles, ta voix me pénêtre;
Un sourire ravit tout mon être.
L'amour est mon maître!
L'heure est brève,
Et pour nous,
Rien n'est si doux
Que l'amour et le rêve!
