Lyrics

France ever glorious,
Always victorious,
Gaily the banner
Now waves before me.
Always victorious,
Gaily thy banner
On high doth wave.
Thy deeds of glory
Shine like a star,
In song, and in story
Thou'rt known near and far.
Bright France ever glorious
Always victorious,
Gaily thy banner
On high doth wave.
Salut a la France
Salut a la Gloire
Salut a la France

Comrades all,
Once again Lets unite
Round the board;
Ah! joy once more to see,
Friends ever dear to me.
yes welcome all,
Thou'rt still to me!
Yes! welcome all.
Bright France ever glorious,
Always victorious,
Gaily thy banner
Now waves before me;
Always victorious.
Gaily thy banner
On high doth wave:
The deeds of glory
Shine like a star,
In song and in story
Thou'rt known near and far.
Bright France ever glorious
Always victorious,
Gaily thy banner
On high doth wave.
