"Maréchal, nous voilà!" is a French song dedicated to Marshal Philippe Pétain. The song was performed on many official occasions in France and Algeria during Vichy France.

Vichy France is the term used to describe the government of France from July 1940 to August 1944. This government, which succeeded the Third Republic, officially called itself the French State (État Français), in contrast with the previous designation, "French Republic." Marshal Philippe Pétain proclaimed the government following the military defeat of France by Nazi Germany during World War II and the vote by the National Assembly on 10 July 1940.

Une flame sacrée
Monte du sol natal,
Et la France enivrée
Te salue, Maréchal!
Tous tes enfants qui taiment
Et vénèrent tes ans,
A ton appel supreme
Ont répondu: Présent.

Maréchal , nous voilà!
Devant toi le sauveur de la France,
Nous jurons, nous tes gars
De servir et de suivre tes pas
Maréchal, nous voilà
Tu nous as a redonné l'espérance
La patrie renaîtra, Maréchal, Maréchal
Nous voilà

Tu as lutté sans cesse
Pour le salut commun;
On parle avec tendresse
Du héros de Verdun..
En nous donnant ta vie,
Ton génie et ta foi,
Tu sauves la patrie
Une seconde fois.
