Je voudrais te dire

En psaumes

En langues

En fleurs sauvages

En météores lointains

En méduses célestes

En arpèges éternelles

En gestes défiés

En sérénades sublimes

En romances ultimes

Je voudrais te dire les mots

Qui ressuscitent ma foi

 

Mais les mots sont trop vains

Et par trop limités

Pour exprimer combien

Tu as pu nous aimer

 

Et je te dis merci

C’est court, pas compliqué

De m’avoir tant aimée

Et de m’aimer encore

Sans mesure, sans report

D’un amour infini

Je veux te dire "merci".    


translation


Thank You my Lord


I would like to tell Thee

In psalms

In tongues

In wild flowers

In distant meteors

In celestial tendrils

In eternal arpeggios

In daring gestures

In sublime serenades

In supreme romances

I would like to tell Thee the words

That revitalise my faith


But words are too empty

And too limited

To express how much

Thou hast already loved us


And so, I just say thank you

It’s short and uncomplicated

For having loved me so

And for loving me still

Without measure, without hesitation

With an infinite love

I want to tell Thee: thank you.
