1 Oh! what a happy birthday

We are celebrating on this beautiful day!

To our good and loving Mother

Let us sing, let us sing all our love.


2 For sixty years now on earth,

Divine Jesus, you have gazed on

A flower very dear to you.

You water it with your graces.


3 Jesus, your sweet-smelling flower

Has gained many hearts for you.

In this valley she has gathered

A beautiful harvest of flowers.


4 Divine Jesus, in our Heavenly

Homeland You will know how to reward her.

We will see you crown her

With the harvest she has gathered.


5 Jesus, your Rose is the Mother

Who directs our childlike hearts.

Deign to listen to their prayer:

May they celebrate her eightieth birthday!
