Tremblez, fiers Tyrans, tremblez ;
Tremblez, fiers Tyrans, tremblez ;
Que vos vains outrages cessent ;
Que vos vains outrages cessent ;
Vous allez être accablez
Vous allez être accablés
Sous ses forces qui renaissent.
Sous ses forces qui renaissent.
 
 
Il faut qu’un dernier effort
Il faut qu’un dernier effort
Vange sa gloire trahie ;
Venge sa gloire trahie ;
Si vous avez craint sa vie,
Si vous avez craint sa vie,
Craignez encor plus sa mort.
Craignez encore plus sa mort.
