  • National Anthem Ye sons of France, awake to glory,
    Hark, hark, what myriads bid you rise:
    Your children, wives and grandsires aging,
    See their tears and hear their cries,
    See their tears and hear their cries!
    Shall hateful tyrants mischief breeding
    With hireling Hosts, a ruffian band
    Affright and desolate the land,
    While peace and liberty lie bleeding?

    CHORUS
    To arms, to arms, ye brave!
    ThMarch on! march on!
    All hearts resolved on victory or death.

    O sacred love of Francy, undying,
    ThThy defenders, death defying,
    Fight with Freedom at their side.
    Soon they sons shall be victorious
    When the banner high is raised;
    And they dying enemies, amazed,
    Shall behold they triumph, great and glorious. http://www.whitehouse.gov/national-anthem/paris-full.html
