Le chant de ceux qui s'en vont sur mer

Language: French (Français)

    Air breton

Adieu, patrie!
L'onde est en furie.
Adieu, patrie,
Azur!

Adieu, maison, treille au fruit mûr,
Adieu, les fleurs d'or du vieux mur!

Adieu, patrie!
Ciel, forêt, prairie!
Adieu, patrie,
Azur!

Adieu, patrie!
L'onde est en furie.
Adieu, patrie,
Azur!

Adieu, fiancée au front pur,
Le ciel est noir, le vent est dur.

Adieu, patrie!
Lise, Anna, Marie!
Adieu, patrie,
Azur!

Adieu, patrie!
L'onde est en furie.
Adieu, patrie,
Azur!

Notre oeil, que voile un deuil futur,
Va du flot sombre au sort obscur!

Adieu, patrie!
Pour toi mon coeur prie.
Adieu, patrie!
Azur!

The song of those who set sail upon the sea

Language: English after the French (Français)

    Breton air

Farewell, homeland!
The water is in a tumult.
Farewell, homeland!
Blue sky!

Farewell, house, vines with ripe fruit,
Farewell, golden flowers beside the ancient wall!

Farewell, homeland!
Sky, forest, meadow!
Farewell, homeland,
Blue sky!

Farewell, homeland!
The water is in a tumult.
Farewell, homeland!
Blue sky!

Farewell, betrothed with the pure brow,
The sky is black, the wind is harsh.

Farewell, homeland!
Lise, Anna, Marie!
Farewell, homeland!
Blue sky!

Farewell, homeland!
The water is in a tumult.
Farewell, homeland!
Blue sky!

Our eyes that hide some future bereavement
Go on dark waters to an unknown destiny!

Farewell, homeland!
For you my heart prays.
Farewell, homeland!
Blue sky!
