"Ursuline" as written by and Julien Hyacinthe Mineau Francis Mineau....
Donne-moi la force d'affronter
Le mal et les hommes
Mon squelette et ma chair
Ensevelis sous la terre
J'ai souffert, tu souffriras
Ne laisse pas tomber les bras
Je serais toujours avec toi

Aucun homme ni aucune religion
Ne viendront sous ma robe
Aucun homme ni aucune religion
Ne viendront sous ma robe
Pour bruler en enfer

    General CommentRough translation:

    Donne-moi la force d'affronter || Give me the strength to face/fight
    Le mal et les hommes || Evil and men
    Mon squelette et ma chair || My skeleton and my flesh
    Ensevelis sous la terre || Buried underneat the earth
    J'ai souffert, tu souffriras || I suffered, you will suffer
    Ne laisse pas tomber les bras || Don't give up/surrender (literally: Don't let your arms down)
    Je serais toujours avec toi || I will always be with you

    Aucun homme ni aucune religion || No man or religion
    Ne viendront sous ma robe || will come under my dress (wierd in French too)
    Aucun homme ni aucune religion || No man or religion
    Ne viendront sous ma robe || will come under my dress
    Pour bruler en enfer || to burn in hell

    Not really sure what it is about, definitely related to religion (and I would say it's more against it than for it)

    My InterpretationThe Ursulines are a religious order. Basically, they are nuns, which explains the reference to a dress. They are well-know for providing elementary education in Quebec prior to last century.

    I imagine the song could be wishes (maybe a prayer) made by a nun. The first part suggests that the wishes might come from a dying/older nun as advice to a new member of the order. "Aucun homme ni aucune religion Ne viendront sous ma robe" might mean that she wishes not to be tempted by men (sexually) or by other religions (ursulines are Catholic).
