Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Be Thou My Vision alternative lyrics
From: GUEST,Caroline

Hello!
I am a lover of the old hymns and would like to know if anyone knows how I can find hymns (particularly "be thou my vision" but others also) translated into french. I would like to sing hymns at church as a solo, but some people in my church only understand French.
Does this site have hymns translated into French?
Thank You,
Caroline

Hello, Caroline - we do have some French songs here (click), but I haven't seen French translations of English hymns. I recently saw a hymnal with Spanish translations of English-language Catholic hymns, but not one with French. I do have one or two French hymnals here - I'll check.

Try Googling "À toi la gloire, O Ressuscité" (Thine be the glory) and "Tel que je suis, sans rien à moi." (Just as I am without one plea.) I don't vouch for them being 100% accurate word-for-word translations but the tunes are the same as in the English versions, and the gist of the 2 texts is pretty much the same as in English. They're used by both Protestants and Catholics.

I WOULD VERY MUCH APPRECIATE THE TRANSLATION INTO FRENCH FROM ENGLISH OF 'BE STILL MY SOUL, THE LORD IS ON MY SIDE' - TUNE FINLANDIA.

THIS IS A SURPRISE FOR THE FUNERAL OF A VERY CLOSE FRIEND OF MINE WHOSE FAMILY ARE FRENCH.

THANK YOU. ASAP PLEASE

ALSO 'I HEAR THE ANGELS SINGING, WITH VOICES SWEET AND CLEAR'.

French version of "Be Still My Soul"(from here). This is all I could find.

Va, ne crains pas: le Seigneur te protège.
Qu'il soit toujours un guide pour tes pas.
Tous tes fardeaux patiemment il allège.
Passent les ans, le même il restera.
Va, ne crains pas car, divin privilège,
Un ami sûr toujours te conduira.

Va, ne crains pas, car se rapproche l'heure
Où, près du Père à jamais nous vivrons.
Qu'un jour béni, la paix en nous demeure
Chassant douleur, angoisse et déception.
Va, ne crains pas: dans une vie meilleure
Bientôt les pleurs, les maux nous oublierons.

Va, ne crains pas: à la barre éternelle,
Ton Dieu connaît l'avenir, le passé.
Que tes espoirs, ni ta foi ne chancellent,
Tous les secrets te seront dévoilés.
Va, ne crains pas: vents et flots se rappellent
La voix de Dieu qui les a maîtrisés.
