André Dassary - Godard - Lullaby from Jocelyn


Original Title: "Berceuse de Jocelyn"
Jocelyn is an Opera by Benjamin Godard
Hidden in this sanctuary
Where God led us
United by misfortune
During the long nights
We both rest
Asleep under their veils
Or pray under the gazes
of the trembling stars

Oh! do not wake up yet
So that a beautiful angel, with your dream,
by unwinding its long golden thread
Child, allows it to come to an end
Sleep! Sleep! the day just barely glinted
Holy Virgin, watch over him.

Tino Rossi's version:
