Cantique de Jean Racine

Kahn-teek dur jahn rah-seen

Fairp ay-gahl oh tray-oh,

Nott-reen-eek ay-spay-rahn-cer,

Joor ay-tare-nell duh lah pay-see-blur nwee.

Noo rawmpawn lu(r) see-lahn-suh,

Dee-van Soh-vur, jett-uh seer noo layz-yuh [lazier].

Ray-pahn seer noo lur fur dur tah grah-sur pwee-sahn-tuh,

Kur too lahn-fair, kur too lahn-fair fwee oh ssawn dur tah vwah.

Dee-see-pur lur sommay deen ah-muh lahn-gee-sahn-tuh,

Kee lah cawn-dwee ah loo-blee tur tay lwah.

 

Oh Kreest, swah fah-for-ah-blu(r) ah sur pur-pler fee-day-luh,

Poohr tu(r) bur-neer man-tur-nahn rah-sah-mblay.

Rur-swah lay chahn keel offruh ah tah glwah ree-mort-ell-uh,

Ada [ay-dur] tay dawn keel rur-toor-nur cawm-blay.
