Herderkens met uw gefluyt,
maeckt hier met my nu dan een soet gheluyt,
den heer die ons heeft soo seer bemint,
licht hier seer teer met doekskens nu bewint.

Herderkens en hoort ghy niet,
comt al naer Bethlehem comt nu en siet,
comt siet dit kintjen dat u bemint,
al ist soo cout, al waeyt soo stuer en wint.

Shepherds with your pipes,
make a sweet sound with me:
the lord who has loved us so greatly
is lying here, a tender child wrapped in rags.

Shepherds, do you not hear?
Come to Bethlehem, come and see,
come and see this child who loves you,
despite the cold, despite the wild wind.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
