Does anyone have the translation to Lynn Hilary's version of Suantraí? I can't find it and it's starting to drive me crazy...

Seothó seothú ló, seothó seothú ló
 Seothú ló, seothú ló
 
My close one, my love and my idol are you
 My darling treasure and my little present are you
 My little beautiful son are you
 How wonderful it is to be with you
 
Alleluia...
 
Seothó seothú ló, seothó seothú ló
 Seothú ló, seothú ló
 Seothú ló

Just to note that Judy Collins sang it as "Christ Child Lullaby" on her second album, Golden Apples of the Sun. Hre are the lyrics she used:

My child, my pride, my treasure O
My wonder new and pleasure O
My son, my beauty, ever you
Who am I to bear You here ?

The cause of talk and tale am I
The cause of greatest fame am I
The cause of proudest care on high
To have for mine, the king of all

And though You are the king of all
They sent You to the manger stall
Where at your feet they all shall fall
And glorify my child the king

There shone a star above three kings
To guide them to the king of kings
They held you in their humble arms
And knelt before You until dawn

They gave You myrrh, they gave You gold
Frankincense and gifts untold
They travelled far these gifts to bring
And glorify their newborn king

(repeat first verses).

Nice songs, isn't it ?

  Is this similar to Meav's version?  I know that Meav wrote her own lyrics for her version. Just curious...  Undecided
