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.

Laudès la gran Vierge,
Ang’ e arcange,
Que sigue cantada
La Maire tant pia.
 Let pray the great (1) Virgin,
Angels and archangels,
Be sung
The so pious Mother.

Let’s pray Mary.

2nd verse
Un Diéu l’encourouna
E lou ciel l’ounoura,
La terra l’adora,
Tout ome li cria :
 A God crowns her
And the heaven honours her,
The Earth worships her,
Every man shouts her:

3rd verse
« O Vierge fecounda,
Que l’Eternou Paire
A vourgut per Maire
Dòu vèrou Messia. »
 “Oh fertile Virgin,
That the Eternal Father
Wanted as Mother
Of the true Messiah.”

4th verse
Oh que bella gloria,
D’un Diéu es la Maire,
A l’ome per faire
Dòu ciel la gran via.
 Oh what a beautiful glory,
Of a God she is the Mother,
To make for the man
To heaven the great way.

5th verse
Per Ella es la via,
Jesù lou viage.
L’ome l’eretage
Sens’ Ella perdìa.
 She is the way,
Jesus the journey.
The man [his] heritage
Without Her would lose.

6th verse
Tambèn, o gran Vierge,
Venès assistà,
Venès aparà
La nouostr’ agounia.
 So, oh great Virgin,
Come and assist [us],
Come and protect [us]
[During] our death pangs.

7th verse
En fin de la vida
Aurèn la vitoria,
Canterèn la gloria
Qu’es vouostra, Maria.
 At the end of the life
We will get the victory,
We will sing the glory
That is yours, Mary.
