Dors dans ton berceau, petite Mireille,
Comme l'oiselet s'endort dans son nid,
Plein d'aube vermeille;
Dors: ta mere est là! dors: ton père veille!
Dors bien doucement: l'amour te bénit.

Nous t'avons donné, charmante mignonne,
Un nom fait avec des syllabes d'or
Où le ciel rayonne;
Et ce nom est comme un grelot qui sonne
Dans les grands blés mûrs, quand vient Messidor.
