Non nobis domine non nobis,
sed nomini tuo da gloriam,
qui Franciscum sublimasti
et in regem coronasti.
Cum plebis laetitia,
ergo clamemus in caelum
Vivat rex in eternum.
Vivat rex, vivat rex per saecula.
O Francia quantum potes,
lauda deum,
qui tibi regem Franciscum dedit.
Ergo clamemus in caelum
vivat rex in eternum,
vivat rex, vivat rex per saecula.

Jesu bone rex virtutum,
qui das salutem regibus,
conserva regem Franciscum,
dans pacem suis diebus.
Ergo clamemus in caelum:
vivat rex in eternum,
vivat rex per secula.
O Maria, mater dei,
exaudi preces Franciscum.
Serva semper lilium
da robur, fer auxilium.
Ergo clamemus in caelum:
vivat rex in eternum,
vivat rex, vivat rex per secula.
