LE SECRET DE DIEU

Le secret de Dieu (text by Hélène Harbec), is a little more introspective in nature. Whispering voices open the movement, setting the mood for the first statement “Si je parvenais à connaître […] le secret de Dieu, je n’en soufflerais mot par simple humilité” (“Even if I were to understand […] the secret of God, I would not breathe a word out of humility”). However, she catches herself, and decides these are not the right thoughts to have. And so she begins again: “Si je parvenais à connaître […] le secret de Dieu, je dirais tout par amour” (“If I were to understand […] the secret of God, I would tell everything out of love”). The music reflects both statements: the first, introspective, humble, quite hidden – the second, the orchestration opens up to reflect the sharing of the secret to all, for the sake of love.

LYRICS

Même si je parvenais à connaitre une 
infinitésimale partie du secret de Dieu

Je n’en soufflerais mot
Par simple humilité

Tu te trompes
Orgueilleuse
Réfléchis
Recommence

Si je parvenais à connaitre une 
infinitésimale partie du secret de Dieu

Je dirais tout
Par amour    

translation

The secret of God

Even if I came to understand the tiniest fraction 
of the secret of God
I would not breathe a word
Out of sheer humility

You’re wrong
You’re arrogant
Reflect a moment
Start over

If I came to know even the tiniest fraction 
of the secret of God
I would tell everything
Out of love
