Lyrics:

[English]

[Verse 1]

The night is onward creeping, my departure is near!
I know your eyes are weeping a compassionate tear!
Dearest land that I cherish, thusto leave thee behind, without courage
I perish; to my sorrow be kind!

[Chorus]

Then farewell, France beloved, whommy soul doth adore!
I with sorrow leave thy shore, fare thee well evermore,
fare the well evermore, fare thee well evermore, fare thee well evermore!

[Verse 2]

The bark that thus doth sever me from thee for ever,
It bears not all away, ah no, it bears not all away!
Mem’ry here one portion retaineth, mem’ry here one portion retaineth,
For my heart with thee remaineth, in thy trust I bid it stay!

[Chorus]

Then farewell, France beloved, whommy soul doth adore!
I with sorrow leave thy shore, fare thee well evermore,
France beloved, whommy soul doth adore!
I with sorrow leave thy shore, fare thee well evermore,
I with grief leave now thy shore, whommy sould doth adore!
Then farewell, France beloved
O France beloved farewell evermore fare the well evermore
fare thee well evermore evermore!

[French]

Deja la nuit s’avance il est tems de patir
Allons a ma soufframce c’est assez compatir
pour quitter ce rivage si plaisant a mon coeur il me faut du
courage epargnez ma douleur.
Adieu done belle France beau pays mes amours
Tu nouris ma tendre enface adieu donc beau pays beau pays pour toujours
Adieu donc pour toujours adieu donc pour tourjours
Pour toujours la nef
Qui brise ma chaine
At loin de toim’en traine n’aura
Jamais de moi n’aura de moi que la moi tie
Une part le rest elle est tienne une par te reste elle est tienne
Que de l’autre il te souvienne je la fie a ton amitie
Adieu donc belle France beau pays mes amours
tu norris mon enfance adieu done beau pays es amours
Adieu done belle France beau payes mes amours
Tu norris ma tendre enface adieu done beau pays beau pays mes amours
Tu norris ma tendre enfance beau pays mes amours.
Adieu donc, adieu donc, belle France
O belle France adieu pour toujours adiue donc
Pour toujours adieu donc pour toujours pour toujours.
