Translation of French text:
Loyal companion, expression of our souls,
Music, we love you, rekindle our flame…
You are the life, you are the light;
You are the flame that enlightens.
From the rising of the sun till the evening shadows,
Throughout our anguishes, within our sorrows,
At all hours, in all places,
In all circumstances you sparkle under our eyes.
Music of our joys!
Music of our cries!
What would we be without you?
You are our Gladness.
By your sweet clarity, reanimate our world;
Forever fill us with a profound kindness.
For all men, in chorus, sing your melodies,
So that our universe becomes a symphony.
Music, we love you, reanimate our world…
