“Il est né, le divin Enfant (He is born, the Heav’nly Child)” lyrics (French)

 Il est né le divin enfant,
Jouez hautbois, résonnez musettes!
Il est né le divin enfant,
Chantons tous son avènement!

1. Depuis plus de quatre mille ans,
Nous le promettaient les prophètes
Depuis plus de quatre mille ans,
Nous attendions cet heureux temps.

 Il est né le divin enfant,
Jouez hautbois, résonnez musettes!
Il est né le divin enfant,
Chantons tous son avènement!

2. Ah ! Qu’il est beau, qu’il est charmant !
Ah ! que ses grâces sont parfaites !
Ah ! Qu’il est beau, qu’il est charmant !
Qu’il est doux ce divin enfant !

 Il est né le divin enfant,
Jouez hautbois, résonnez musettes!
Il est né le divin enfant,
Chantons tous son avènement!

3. Une étable est son logement
Un peu de paille est sa couchette,
Une étable est son logement
Pour un dieu quel abaissement !

He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

1. ‘Tis four thousand years and more,
Prophets have foretold His coming,
‘Tis four thousand years and more,
Have we waited this happy hour.

He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

2. Ah, how lovely, Ah, how fair,
What perfection is His graces,
Ah, how lovely, Ah, how fair.
Child divine, so gentle there.

He is born, the Heav’nly Child,
Oboes play; set bagpipes sounding
He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

3. In a stable lodged is He,
Straw is all He has for cradle.
In a stable lodged is He,
Oh how great humility!

Though a little babe You come here,

Rule o’er us from this glad hour.

He is born, the Heav’nly Child.
Let all sing His nativity.

“Il est né, le divin Enfant (He is born, the Heav’nly Child)” Teaching ideas

Note that the song begins with the interval of perfect 4th. It ‘s a good opportunity for children to memorize and recognize this interval.

Furthermore, the end of the word “musettes” -or the whole word “sounding” for the English text- is based on the descending arpeggio of the dominant.

In both of these cases, sing voicelessly the chorus and then loudly only the section to which you want to pay attention.
