Lyrics

France I adore thee, fondly I love thee
Proudly before me the gleaming banner waves.
Fondly I love thee, proudly before me thy banner waves.
Banner of glory, bright victory's star;
Ah may it waver ever, victorious in war

Dear France I adore thee, fondly I love thee,
Proudly before me thy banner waves.
Salut a la France! Salut a la Glorie, Salut a la France!
Dearest friends, dearest friends once again joined are we,
What pleasure and what joy;
Oh! may we part no more,
What joy to me, this hour to see Oh! dearest friends!

Dear France I adore thee, fondly I love thee,
Proudly before me thy gleaming banner waves.
Fondly I love thee, proudly before me the banner waves
Banner of glory, bright Victory's star;
Ah! may it wave ever Victorious in war.

Dear France I adore thee, fondly I love thee,
Proudly before me the banner waves.
Salut a la France! Salut a la Glorie, Salut a la France!
