Jeannette, Isabella | Free Sheet Music, Lyrics, Chords, and Video

Bring a Torch, Jeanette, Isabella is a Christmas carol which originated from the Provence region of France in the 16th century…

The carol tells the story of two milkmaids, Jeanette and Isabella, who went to milk their cows in a manger in Bethlehem, only to find the baby Jesus sleeping in the hay. The two girls ran to town to tell the village of the coming of Christ, and the townspeople came with their own torches to view the sight for themselves. However, they had to keep their voices down so little Jesus could enjoy his dreams. To this day in the Provence region, children dress up as shepherds and milkmaids, carrying torches and candles to Midnight Mass onChristmas Eve, while singing the carol…

Lyrics for ‘Bring a Torch Jeannette, Isabella’

Bring a torch, Jeanette, Isabella
Bring a torch, to the cradle run!
It is Jesus good folk of the village;
Christ is born and Mary’s calling;
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is the mother!
Ah! Ah! Beautiful is her son!
