Abstract

My shepherd here, my shepherd here!
And thro' absence grown so dear,
My shepherd here, my shepherd here!
Ah! what joy that he is near,
Tho' in gold and sild apparel,
Still thy heart remains the same.
'Tis my shepherd loved and loving,
'Tis his own beloved name.
My shepherd here, my shepherd here!
My shepherd dear, my shepherd dear,
Then farewell to all repining Sorrow is past,
Newer hopes for me are shining
Hail shepherd dear,
With thee to the altar wending
Hope for me bright colors blending
I'll a wreath of Orange twine ever singing thou art mine
Yes, thou are mine, Yes, thou art mine
And nought can be can bemore dear.
My shepherd here, my shepherd here,
He comes my heart again to cheer.
Her shepherd here, her shepherd here,
Her shepherd here, her shepherd here!
Her shepherd here, her shepherd here,
Her shepherd here, her shepherd here!

C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger!
Pour quoi me faire enrager?
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger
C'est bien lui, c'est mon berger
Il a change de costume
Mais son coeur n'a pu changer
Et sous cette toque a plume
Je reconnais mon berger
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger!
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger!
Quel plaisir de reconnaitre
Ce front charmant
Il est mon seigneur et maitre,
Et mon amant. Mariez nous tout de suite
A mon cote mettez vi te
Mettez la fleur d'oranger
Que je pouse mon berger
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger
Pour quoi don me faire enrager?
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger
Pour quoi don me faire enrager?
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger
C'est mon berger, c'est mon berger!
