[English translation:]

Have courage, you who are human beings: Jesus, he is born
The okie spirit who enslaved us has fled
Don't listen to him for he corrupts the spirits of our thoughts
Jesus, he is born

The okie spirits who live in the sky are coming with a message
They're coming to say, "Rejoice!
Mary has given birth. Rejoice!"
Jesus, he is born

Three men of great authority have left for the place of his birth
Tiscient, the star appearing over the horizon leads them there
That star will walk first on the bath to guide them
Jesus, he is born

The star stopped not far from where Jesus was born
Having found the place it said
"Come this way"
Jesus, he is born

As they entered and saw Jesus they praised his name
They oiled his scalp many times, anointing his head
With the oil of the sunflower
Jesus, he is born

They say, "Let us place his name in a position of honour
Let us act reverently towards him for he comes to show us mercy
It is the will of the spirits that you love us, Jesus
And we wish that we may be adopted into your family
Jesus, he is born

    Twas in the moon of winter-time
    When all the birds had fled,
    That mighty Gitchi Manitou
    Sent angel choirs instead;
    Before their light the stars grew dim,
    And wandering hunters heard the hymn:
    "Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born,
    In excelsis gloria."

    Within a lodge of broken bark
    The tender Babe was found,
    A ragged robe of rabbit skin
    Enwrapp'd His beauty round;
    But as the hunter braves drew nigh,
    The angel song rang loud and high...
    "Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born,
    In excelsis gloria."

    The earliest moon of wintertime
    Is not so round and fair
    As was the ring of glory
    On the helpless infant there.
    The chiefs from far before him knelt
    With gifts of fox and beaver pelt.
    Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born,
    In excelsis gloria.

    O children of the forest free,
    O sons of Manitou,
    The Holy Child of earth and heaven
    Is born today for you.
    Come kneel before the radiant Boy
    Who brings you beauty, peace and joy.
    "Jesus your King is born, Jesus is born,
    In excelsis gloria."

  5. Pierre Pastedechouan
