Allons enfants d’la Patrie

From liberté came the startled eve
Blood upon the boulevards
With horror they stoop to disbelieve
Beyond the reach of words

Again the livid slash of terror
Seeks to bend their knee
Yet France again draw breath together
In the cradle of the free

Raise up their eyes to a hopeful gaze
Strengthen the burdened soul
Ringing out in their grief, La Marseillaise
Fraternité, to make them whole
