Lyrics

LyricsPoetic Translation
Prière devant le repasPrayer before meals
O Souverain Pasteur, et Maistre,O Sovereign Shepherd and Master,
Regarde ce trouppeau petit,Upon this flock direct Your sight,
Et de tes biens souffre le paistre,And suffer us without disaster
Sans desordonné appetit,To graze with peaceful appetite,
Nourrissant petit à petitAnd nourish slowly, bite by bite,
A ce jour d'huy ta creature,This little body, Your creation,
Par celluy qui pour nous vestitI pray through Him who left Your light
Ung corps subject à nourriture.And hunger felt for our salvation.
Clément MarotCarol Anne Perry Lagemann
