(c) 1977 by les ditions de l'critoire
1Prendre un enfant par la main
Pour l'emmener vers demain
Pour lui donner la confiance en son pas
Prendre un enfant pour un roi
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras
Et pour la premire fois
Scher ses larmes en touffant de joie
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras.
2Prendre un enfant par le coeur
Pour soulager ses malheurs
Tout doucement sans parler, sans pudeur
Prendre un enfant sur son coeur
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras
Mais pour la premire fois
Verser des larmes en touffant sa joie
Prendre un enfant contre soi
3Prendre un enfant par la main
Et lui chanter des refrains
Pour qu'il s'endorme la tombe du jour
Prendre un enfant par l'amour
Prendre un enfant comme il vient
Et consoler ses chagrins
Vivre sa vie des annes, puis soudain
Prendre un enfant par la main
En regardant tout au bout du chemin
Prendre un enfant pour le sien

    Take a child by the hand
    To take him to tomorrow
    To give confidence in his step
    Take a child for a king
    Take a child in her arms
    And for the first time
    Scher tears of joy in clumps
    Take a child in her arms.
    2prendre a child's heart
    To relieve his troubles
    Quietly without talking, without shame
    Take a child to her heart
    Take a child in her arms
    But for the first time
    Tears in tufts joy
    Take a child against itself
    3prendre a child by the hand
    And he sang songs
    He falls asleep to the grave of the day
    Take a child with love
    Take a child as it comes
    And console her grief
    Live life for years, then suddenly
    Take a child by the hand
    Looking at the far end of the road
    Take a child to his..
