Nous t'adorons, Christ
Language: French (Français) after the Latin
Nous t'adorons, Christ,
et nous te bénissons ;
Car par ta sainte croix
tu as racheté le monde.
Seigneur, aie pitié de nous.
Nous te rendons grâce,
roi tout puissant, de tes bienfaits,
toi qui vis et règnes à travers tous
les siècles des siècles. Amen.
