Je ne suis qu’une jeune fille

Et pourtant le Seigneur m’a choisie

Le message de l’ange m’a surprise

Je serai mère de Dieu.

 

Le Seigneur m’annonce

Mon rôle en son projet

Je ferai de mon plus grand effort

Que sa volonté soit faite.

 

Joseph et moi étions promis

Que sera ma vie sans lui?

O Seigneur, tu sais ce que tu fais

Je m’en remets à ta bonté.

 

J’ai déjà beaucoup reçu

Mon cœur et ma vie sont à toi

Savoir que je vais porter mon Dieu

C’est la surprise de ma vie.    


Translation


The revelation


I am just a young girl

And yet, the Lord has chosen me

The angel’s message took me by surprise:

I will be the mother of God.


The Lord informs me

Of my role in his plan

I will strive my very hardest

So that His will may be done.


Joseph and I were betrothed

What will my life be without him?

O Lord, Thou knowest what is best

I’m giving myself up to Thy mercy.


I’ve already received so much

My heart and my life belong to Thee

To know that I will bear my God —

It’s the surprise of my life.
