Translation (AJ):

1._How sweet is the remembrance I have Of the pleasant place of our childhood! My sister, how beautiful were the days In France! Oh my country, be my love Forever!

2._Do you remember our mother At the hearth of our thatched cottage, Hugging us on her joyous heart, Oh my dear one? And we were kissing her white hair Us both!

3._My sister, do you also remember The castle watered by the Dore, And this so old tower [Called] "Of the Moor" Where the brass was striking the return Of the day?

4._Do you remember the lake tranquil Skimmed by the swallow agile And the wind bending the reeds [So] mobile, And the sun setting down over the water So beautiful?

5._Oh! who will bring me back my Hélène And my mountain, and the great oak? Their recollection makes every day My pain! My country will be my love Always!
