Cantique  by  Maurice Maeterlinck

A toute âme qui pleure
A tout péché qui passe
J’ouvre au sein des étoiles
mes mains pleines de grâces

Il n’est péché qui vive
Quand l’amour a parlé
Il n’est àme qui meure
Quand l’amour a pleuré

Et si l’amour s’égare
Aux sentiers d’icibas
Ses larmes me retrouvent
Et ne s’égarent pas

Hymn  translation by Hélène Lindqvist

To all weeping souls
to all sin to pass
I open in the midst of the stars
my hands full of grace

No sin lives
where love  speaks
No soul dies
where love weeps

And if love gets lost
on the paths of the earth
Its tears will find me
and not go astray
