The National Anthem Of The French Republic – La Marseillaise lyrics

Allons enfants de la patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivй
Contre nous de la tyrannie
L'йtendard sanglant est levй
Entendez vous dans les campagnes,
Mugir ces fйroces soldats?
Ils viennent jusque dans nos bras
Egorger nos fils, nos compagnes!

Refrain

Aux armes, citoyens!
Formez vos bataillons!
Marchons! Marchons!
Qu'un sang impur
Abreuve nos sillons!

Amour sacrй de la patrie,
Conduis, soutiens nos bras vengeurs!
Libertй, Libertй cherie,
Combats avec tes defenseurs!
Sous nos drapeaux, que la victoire
Accoure а tes males accents!
Que tes ennemis expirants
Voient ton triomphe et notre gloire!

Refrain

Nous entrerons dans la carriиre
Quand nos ainйs n'y seront plus;
Nous y trouverons leur poussiиre
Et la trace de leurs vertus.
Bien moins jaloux de leur survivre
Que de partager leur cercueil,
Nous aurons le sublime orgueil
De les venger ou de les suivre!

Refrain
