French National Anthem

French National Anthem

Allons enfants de la Patrie,
Le jour de gloire est arrivé !
Contre nous de la tyrannie,
L’étendard sanglant est levé, (bis)

Entendez-vous dans les campagnes

Mugir ces féroces 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 !

 

English Translation

Arise children of the fatherland
The day of glory has arrived
Against us tyranny’s
Bloody standard is raised
Listen to the sound in the fields
The howling of these fearsome soldiers
They are coming into our midst
To cut the throats of our sons and consorts

Refrain :

To arms citizens Form your battalions
March, march
Let impure blood
Water our furrows
