Channel Islander anthem lyrics (English translation)
When everything is reborn in hope
And winter flees far from us,
Under the beautiful sky of our France,
When the sun returns gentler,
When nature has turned green again,
When the swallow has returned,
I like to see again my Normandy,
It's the country where I was born.
I've seen the fields of Helvetia,
And its chalets and its glaciers,
I've seen the sky of Italy,
And Venice and its gondoliers.
Greeting each homeland,
I told myself that no stay
Is finer than my Normandy,
It's the country where I was born.
There comes a time of life,
When every dream must end,
A time when the restful soul
Needs to remember.
When my chilled muse
Makes its way back to the past,
I'll go see again my Normandy,
It's the country where I was born.
