Les trois sœurs aveugles

Language: French (Français)

Les trois sœurs aveugles
   (Espérons encore)
Les trois sœurs aveugles
Ont leurs lampes d'or;

Montent à la tour,
   (Elles, vous et nous)
Montent à la tour,
Attendent sept jours...

Ah ! dit la première,
   (Espérons encore)
Ah ! dit la première,
J'entends nos lumières...

Ah ! dit la seconde,
   (Elles, vous et nous)
Ah ! dit la seconde,
C'est le roi qui monte...

Non, dit la plus sainte,
   (Espérons encore)
Non, dit la plus sainte,
Elles se sont éteintes...

De trenne blinda systrar

Language: Swedish (Svenska) after the French (Français)

De trenne blinda systrar
(Låt oss hoppas få)
de trenne blinda systrar
med gyllne lampor gå.

Så gå de upp i tornet – 
(De, jag och du)
Så går de upp i tornet – 
de bida dagar sju.

Ack, säger första systern –
(Aldrig hoppet dör)
Ack, säger första systern –
jag ljusen brinna hör.

Ack, säger andra systern –
(De, jag och du)
Ack, säger andra systern –
Vår konung kommer nu.

Nej, säger helga systern –
(Låt hoppet ej förgå)
Ne, säger helga systern –
Släckta ljusen stå.
