Du bleu de notre ciel,
Des courbures de nos rivières
Au-dessus de nos montagnes
Où les falaises font écho
À travers nos prairies
Où résonne nos chansons
Frissonne la voix de notre mie,
De notre pays Occitanie
Nous répondrons à ton appel,
Nous offrirons ce que tu demandes:
Nous vivrons, ou nous mourrons,
Nous pour toi, Occitanie
From the blue of our sky,
Bends of our rivers
Above our mountains
Where the cliffs echo
Through our meadows
Where our songs resonate
Shuddering the voice of our dear,
From our country Occitania
We will answer your call,
We will offer what you ask:
We shall live, or we shall die,
We for you, Occitania
