From The Hymn
Dedicated to Joan of Arc
Raising the people out of profound misery, thou hast accomplished miracles, O, generous virgin!
With right shall the generations call thee through the centuries, "Parent of Our Country."
The greatest reward remains the best. New work and new triumph call thee.
God in sending for thee gave thee new strength and the crown.
To Him who gave salvation to the oppressed, the thrice blessed Lord, let us offer our praises, so that France shall live forever through the many merits of her patron.
