Let us sing to the glory of our fathers Who throughout history Have made their way in the world, And who always, the books tell us, Have remained free Like the sea and the mistral.

Chantons la gloire de nos pères Qui dans l’histoire Ont fait leur trou, Et qui toujours, nous disent les livres, Sont restés libres Comme la mer et le mistral.

De nòsti paire canten la glòri Que dins l'istòri An fa soun trau, E que de-longo, nous dien li libre, Soun resta libre Coume la mar e lou mistrau. —Frédéric Mistral, Les îles dor
