S'il est un charmant gazon
If there is a delightful lawn

Hugo

If there is a charming lawn
Watered from the skies
Where throughout the whole year long
Flowers refresh your eyes,
Where you pick in handfuls
Jasmine, lilies, meadowsweet,
Id make it into a path
Where you could place your feet.

If there is a dream of love
Thats perfumed by sweet roses,
Where youll find it each new day
A fresh delight discloses,
A dream, one which God blesses,
Where soul to soul confesses,
Id make it into a nest
Where your dear heart could rest.
