Poèmes pour Mi


L'épouse

Va où l'esprit te mène,
Nul ne peut séparer ce que Dieu a uni,
Va où l'esprit te mène,
L'épouse est le prolongement de l'époux,
Va où l'esprit te mène,
Comme l'Eglise est le prolongement du Christ.

The bride

Go whither the Spirit lead you,
No one can put asunder what God has united,
Go whither the Spirit lead you,
The bride is the extension of the bridegroom,
Go whither the Spirit lead you,
As the Church is the extension of Chirst.
Translation © Richard Stokes, from A French Song Companion (Oxford, 2000)
