LES ENFANTS
(dans l'intérieur de la maison)
Jésus vient de naître!
Voici notre divin maître,
Rois et bergers d'Israël!
Dans le firmament des anges gardiens fidèles
ont ouvert grandes leurs ailes
et s'en vont partout chantant: Noël!

WERTHER(écoutant)Chers enfants!(à  lui-même)Ici-bas rien ne vaut les enfants!Chers enfants!Autant notre vie est amère...autant leurs jours sont pleins de foi,leur âmes pleine de lumière!

English Libretto or Translation:

CHILDREN
(in the interior of the house)
Jesus has just been born!
Here is our divine master,
Kings and shepherds of Israel!
In the firmament of faithful guardian angels
have opened their wings
and go everywhere singing: Christmas!

WERTHER(Listening)Dear children!(to himself)Here, nothing is worth the children!Dear children!As much as our life is bitter ...as much as their days are full of faith,their souls full of light!
