D’argent à une aigle de gueules, au vol abaissé, membrée, becquée et couronnée d’or, empiétant une montagne de trois coupeaux de sable issant d’une mer d’azur mouvant de la pointe et ondée d’argent.

(Holy Host)
Nissart lyrics and music by Louis Nicola. Traditional from County of Nice.

Oustia santa e salutari
Que duerbes la pouorta dòu ciel,
Oustia santa e salutari,
Pouorte n’en a toui la gracia dòu ciel.

À nouostre Dièu,
À Dièu qu’es un en très persouna,
À nouostre Dièu,
Eu qu’ai sièu sant la vida douna,
Ounour e gloria eternamèn.
 Holy and salutary host,
That opens heaven door,
Holy and salutary host,
Bring to all of us the grace of heaven.

To our God,
To God who is one in three persons,
To our God,
Him who gives the life to his saints,
Honour and glory eternally.
