Lyrics to Minuit Chretiens

Lyrics to “Minuit, Chrétiens” Minuit, Chrétiens

Minuit, chrétiens, c’est l’heure solennelle
Midnight, Christians, it is the solemn hour
Où l’Homme-Dieu descendit jusqu’à nous,
When God as man descended among us
Pour effacer la tache originelle,
To expunge the stain of original sin
Et de son Père arrêter le courroux.
And to put an end to the wrath of his father.
Le monde entier tressaille d’espérance,
The entire world thrills with hope
À cette nuit qui lui donne un Sauveur.
On this night which gives us a savior.
Peuple, à genoux, attends ta délivrance
People, on your knees, await your deliverance.
Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur!
Christmas! Christmas! Here is the Redeemer!
Noël! Noël! Voici le Rédempteur!
Christmas! Christmas! Here is the Redeemer!


Music by Adolphe-Charles Adam
Lyrics by Placide Cappeau c. 1847
