D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

This Christmas carol has been published on 1668 in the 1st book, with number 4.

1st verse
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèms, bregado ?
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèm
Qu’erian ensèn aquelo vesprenado
Sus lei coutau de Betelèn ?
Que veguerian tan de flamado,
Que l’ange dòu cèu venguè d’uno voulado.
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèms, bregado ?
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèm ?
 Ah! When will come back the time, shepherds (1)?
Ah! When will come back the time
When we were together, this afternoon,
On Bethlehem hillsides?
Where we saw so much blaze,
Where angel from the heaven came in one flight.
Ah! When will come back the time, shepherds?
Ah! When will come back the time?

2nd verse
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèms, bregado ?
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèm
Qu’ausiguerian uno tan bello aubado
De voues e d’estrumen ensèn ?
Que de fredoun e de tirado !
N’ai jamai ausi plus bello serenado.
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèms, bregado ?
Ai ! quouro tournara lou tèm ?
 Ah! When will come back the time, shepherds?
Ah! When will come back the time
When we heard such a fine dawn serenade
Of voices and instruments together?
How much hummings and speeches!
I’ve never heard more beautiful serenade.
Ah! When will come back the time, shepherds?
Ah! When will come back the time?

3rd verse
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
Que riguerian, aquelo matinado,
Qu’anerian vèire la Jacènt ?
Escalavian à la mountado
E barrulavian long de la davalado.
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
 Ah! When will come back, etc.
When we were laughing, this morning,
Going to see the New Mother?
We were climbing on the uphill slope
And hurtling [all] along the downward slope.
Ah! When will come back, etc.

4th verse
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
Jamai chivau n’a miéu gagna civado,
Courrian plu vite que lou vènt !
Fasian de saut e de cambado
Que fasian sourti lou fio de la calado !
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
 Ah! When will come back, etc.
Never a horse better earned [its] oats,
They were running faster than the wind!
They were jumping and gamboling
That make fire coming out from cobblestones!
Ah! When will come back, etc.

5th verse
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
Quand trouberian la Maire benurado
E soun pichot dessus lou fèn,
Qu’avié besoun d’uno flassado,
Car avié toumbat uno grosso jalado.
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
 Ah! When will come back, etc.
When we found the Blessed Mother
And her child on the hay,
Needing a woollen blanket,
Because was coming down a heavy frost.
Ah! When will come back, etc.

6th verse
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
Quand uno estello bèn iluminado
Faguè bada bèn proun de gènt,
Que soulamen s’èro levado
E davans lei Rèi èro toujour anado.
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
 Ah! When will come back, etc.
When a star well illuminated
Was making a lot of people to gape,
That just awake from sleep
And in front of the Three Kings always went.
Ah! When will come back, etc.

7th verse
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
Quand lou Pichot aguè la regalado
De mirro, d’or emé d’encèn,
Quand lou plus vièi de l’assemblado
Lei li presentè dins sa coupo daurado.
Ai ! quouro tournara, etc.
 Ah! When will come back, etc.
When the Child got the gifts (2)
Of myrrh, gold with incense,
When the oldier of the gathering
Presented them to him in the golden bowl.
Ah! When will come back, etc.

1. Bregado, gathering of shepherds.
2. Regalado, present given to a king (from Latin regalis, royal).
