Après la naissance de son fils
Language: French (Français)  after the German (Deutsch) 
Seigneur Jésus-Christ, toi qu'ils ont couronné d'épines,
Protège la naissance de ce nouveau-né,
Et si c'est ta volonté, qu'aussi sa descendance
Règne longtemps sur de royaume,
Et que tout ce qui est fait en ton nom
Le soit pour ta gloire, ta louange et ton honneur, Amen.
