Bring a torch, Jeanetta Isabella
Bring a torch, to the cradle, run
It is Jesus, good folk of the village
Christ is born and Mary's calling
Ah! Ah! beautiful is the Mother
Ah! Ah! beautiful is her Son!

It is wrong when the Child is sleeping,
It is wrong to talk to so loud;
Silence, all, as you gather 'round,
Lest your noise should waken Jesus;
Hush! Hush! see how fast He slumbers;
Hush! Hush! see how fast he sleeps!

Softly to the little stable,
Softly for a moment come;
Look and see how charming is Jesus
How He is white, His cheeks are rosy!
Hush! Hush! see how the Child is sleeping;
Hush! Hush! see how He smiles in dreams.
