Debout sainte cohorte

Representative Text

1 Debout, sainte cohorte,
soldats du Roi des rois!
Tenez d’une main forte
l’étendard de la croix.
Au sentier de la gloire
Jésus-Christ nous conduit;
De victoire en victoire
Il mène qui Le suit.

2 La trompette résonne:
debout, vaillants soldats!
L’immortelle couronne
est le prix des combats.
Si l’ennemi fait rage,
soyez fermes et forts;
Redoublez de courage
s’il redouble d’efforts.

3 Debout pour la bataille,
point de trêve aux vaincus!
Si votre bras défaille
regardez à Jésus!
De l’armure invincible
soldats, revêtez-vous;
Le triomphe est possible
pour qui lutte à genoux.

4 Debout, debout encore!
Luttez, jusqu’au matin;
Déjà brille l’aurore,
à l’horizon lointain.
Bientôt jetant nos armes
aux pieds du Roi des rois,
Les chants après les armes,
le trône après la croix.
