Torches here, Jeannette, Isabella!
Torches here, to the stable, run!
This is Jesus, good folk of the village.
Christ is born, 'tis Mary calling --
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the Mother!
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is Her Son!
--17th century Provencal carol
May the Magna Mater and Her Divine Child bring their special blessings to the World once again. Be it so!
