Beata nobis gaudia
Reduxit proles regia,
Qui patris actis inclitus
Nec laude carens propria.
Post tot laborum tedia,
Post tot felices exitus,
Tibi debetur, Gallia,
Regni cuius inicia
Tua, dei tu digitus,
Veni creator spiritus.
The royal stock
Has brought us blessed joys,
The first-born of Philip [Augustus],
One who is famous in the deeds of his father
But who does not lack praise of his own,
And who is due to you, France,
After so many laborious trials,
After so many joyous events.
Come, maker of the spirit,
Finger of God,
Infuse his ceremonies of kingship
With your clemency.
