Trois mélodies is a set of mélodies for solo voice and piano, by Gabriel Fauré. It is composed of Après un rêve (Op. 7, No. 1), one of Faure's most popular vocal pieces, Hymne (Op. 7, No. 2), and Barcarolle (Op. 7, No. 3). The songs were written between 1870 and 1878.

"Hymne" is set to a poem by Charles Baudelaire. The meaning of the text follows Baudelaire's ongoing theme of paradox: the spirituality of what is sensual and the sensuality of what is sanctified. Fauré's setting of the text centers subtly around this idea. Hymne, just like Après un rêve, retains an ethereal mood. The unchanged harmonic motion after "Forever hail!" indicates the entrance to the untroubled world of spirituality. After the word "sel" which literally means salt but in this case refers figuratively to something engaging, the harmony begins to change. Under a soft, but highly chromatic piano line the stanza about "incorruptible love" brings the song to a dramatic climax. After this stint, the piece returns to its tranquil state; however, the piece does end with the melody's tonic note and the piano's leading tone clashing for a stunning effect.

This piece is the second in the series of three and has been arranged for Viola & Concert (Pedal) Harp.
