On the twenty-fourth of
August,
1572 in Paris was terrible
Bloodshed
Name of this carnage in
History is the
Night Of
Saint-Bartholomew...
In the midst of wars by
Religion
When the rivers of blood
Gushed
Fratricide was (with gory
Contagion)
For the peace and name of
God
At the awful moonlit
Night
Cathedral bells of Saint-Germain
L'Auxerrois
Sounded, rang to the infamous
Fight,
Christian love was
Devitalized
At the sign of all Parisian
Church bells
Ranting hordes killed without
Sense
When the strange nocturnal mass
Started
Murderers from gore were
Soulless...
At the horrible moonlit
Night
Selected doors were
Stigmatized
With the shameful white
Crosses,
The poor lives doomed by
Death
Impiety - in the name of Jesus
Christ,
Brutality - because of the
Supernal Light
Disembowelment - in the name of
Angels and Saints,
Dismemberment - because of the
Religious Faith
Torches illuminated the face
Of slayers,
Swords and spears were in hands of
Slaughterers,
This Unmerciful Night was Revel of
The Deathmen
In the Valley Of Misery,
Where the river always
Spilt,
Bloody corpses and dying
Victims
Floated on the Sanguine
Stream
At this sanguinary night was
Bloodbath -
- In the name of Christ,
-
- Where was Royal Law? -
- Where was Christian Love
? -
In the midst of wars by
Religion
When the streams of gore
Gushed
Fratricide was (with bloody
Confusion)
For the quiet and name of
God
At the dreadful moonlit
Night
Cathedral bells of Saint-Germain
L'Auxerrois
Sounded, rang to dishonest
Fight,
Christian laws were
Devitalized
At the sign..... Were
Soulless!
