The Swingle Singers - The shepherds’ farewell
Tekst en muziek: Hector Berlioz
(1998)






Thou must leave thy lowly dwelling
The humble crib, the stable bare
Babe, all mortal babes excelling
Content our earthly lot to share
Loving father, loving mother
Shelter thee with tender care
Loving father, loving mother
Shelter thee with tender care
Shelter thee with tender care



Blessed Jesus, we implore thee
With humble love and lowly fear
In the land that lies before thee
Forget not us who linger here
May the shepherd’s lowly calling
Ever to thy heart be dear
May the shepherd’s lowly calling
Ever to thy heart be dear
Ever to thy heart be dear



Blessed are ye beyond all measure
Thou happy father, mother mild
Guard ye well your heav’nly treasure
The Prince of Peace, the Holy Child
God go with you, God protect you
Guide you safely through the wild
God go with you, God protect you
Guide you safely through the wild
Guide you safely through the wild
