  • Text: De furieux combats se sont livrés en Belgique et la Nord de la France, Nos cuirassiers se sont montrés / aussi dignes leurs pères à la bataille de Reichshoffen. / Du côté allemand, les cavaliers se rendaient et offraient leurs armes; ce fut une ruée terrible où nous / eûmes l'avantage, l'ennemi fut repoussé sur plusieurs kilomètres. C'est ainsi que se battent nos hommes./ Avec un superbe mepris de la mort, ils courrent [sic] à travers la mitraille sous les plis sacrés de nos drapeaux,/ ils sont dignes de la victoire.
