Reine des cieux
Language: French (Français) after the Latin
Reine des cieux réjouis-toi, alléluia,
Car tu as mérité de porter celui, alléluia,
Qui a ressuscité, comme il l'a dit, alléluia,
Prie pour nous Dieu, alléluia.
Éprouve de la joie et réjouis-toi, Vierge Marie, alléluia,
Car le Seigneur s'est élevé, en effet, alléluia.
