Comments about Within The Way Without on this web site prompted me to watch it again and particularly liked the singing of Ultreya-it brought back memories of the Abbey in Conques where this song was sung. Does anyone know the words in French and English?

Here it is in French Omar. Sorry, I don't have an English version. If you would like to hear it being sung by a couple of French pilgrims, mail me and I will send you a short clip. You can also hear the tune on Youtube:

Tous les matins nous prenons le chemin,
Tous les matins nous allons plus loin.
Jour après jour, St Jacques nous appelle,
C’est la voix de Compostelle.
Ultreïa ! Ultreïa ! E sus eia Deus adjuva nos !

Chemin de terre et chemin de Foi,
Voie millénaire de l’Europe,
La voie lactée de Charlemagne,
C’est le chemin de tous mes jacquets.
Ultreïa ! Ultreïa ! E sus eia Deus adjuva nos !

Et tout là-bas au bout du continent,
Messire Jacques nous attend,
Depuis toujours son sourire fixe,
Le soleil qui meurt au Finistère.
Ultreïa ! Ultreïa ! E sus eia Deus adjuva nos !

A chaque pas, nous devenons des frères
Patron St Jacques, la main dans la main
Chemin de Foi, chemin de lumière
Voie millénaire des pèlerins.
Ultreïa ! Ultreïa ! E sus eia Deus adjuva nos !

Mr St Jacques écoutez notre appel
Des Pyrénées à Compostelle,
Dirigez nous du pied de cet autel,
Ici-bas et jusqu’au Ciel.
Ultreïa ! Ultreïa ! E sus eia Deus adjuva nos !
Paroles et musique Jean-Claude Benazet

I have posted a wav. link to the song Ultreia being sung by French pilgrims, on my blog.

If new pilgrims would like to see some of the many waymarks, shells and arrows, I have also published a few photos on waymarks on the blog.
