Brume

Brume, brume, grise et ouatée,
Brume sur la plaine noyée,
Grise brume du Nord..
 
La brume qui tombe sur la plaine longue
Et la terre qui s'endort...
( Brume du Nord)..
 
Engloutis nos champs et nos villes,
Nos campagnes et nos usines..
Grise brume du Nord
 
La brume qui tombe sur la plaine longue
Et la terre qui s'endort...
 
Brume, cache-nous la lumière
Tant que durera cette guerre.
Grise brume du Nord..
 
La brume qui tombe
Sur la plaine longue
Et la terre qui s'endort..
 
Mais, un matin, dans la lumière,
Se réveillera notre terre.
Alors, les gars du Nord,
Oubliant la peine ,
Oubliant la haine,
Tous ensemble, unis et forts,
Nous rebâtirons, dans l'effort .

Mist

9/ Mist, O, Mist, O , so smooth, soft and grey
Mist O, spreading over the soaked plain..
6/ O, grey mist of the North..
5/The mist is falling
Over the long plain,
Over the slum/bering land..
[ Mist of the North]..
 
9/Submerged are all our fields and cities,
Our countryside and all our factories..
O grey mist of the North..
 
The mist is falling
Over the long plain,
Over the slumbering land...
 
Mist, O, from us, please, hide the light
As long as this awful sad war lasts..
O grey mist of the North..
 
The mist is falling
Over the long plain
Over the slumbering land..
 
But, in the full light, one fine morning,
Will wake up again our blessed land
Then, we, men of the North,
Forgetting our pain,
Forgetting hatred ,
7/ Together, strong, united,
Shall manage to rebuild our land..
 
Thanks!

As mute es are pronounced in this choir-piece, I've written figures to indicate the beat, which is a tricky one, uneven, sometimes 9 then 7 then 6...
