O Iesu soete kint,
moet ghy in eenen stal,
hier rusten in de wint
waer sijdt ghy herders al
is er niet een paleis,
oft niet een kamer cleyn,
daer ghy in dese reys,
soud' rusten kintjen reyn.

Jesus, sweet child,
you must rest in a stable
here, in the wind.
Where are you all, shepherds?
Is there not a palace
or a tiny room
where, during this journey,
you could rest, innocent child?

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
