Victory! Victory! ( The French take up the shout:) Victory! Victory!... Long live Joan of Arc!... Long live the liberator of Orléans!... — (JOAN responds:) Long live Christ! Long live Charles VII! (All the French cry out together:) Long live Christ! Long live Joan the Maid! Long live the King and the Kingdom of the French!
