lontaining the translation into English of some National songs of the Netherlands.
National Air.
(¥ho Neerland's blood feel nobly
From foreign tainture free.
Whose hearts for king and country
Come, raise the song as we:
With breasts serene, and spirits gay,
In holy union sing.
The soul-inspiring festal lay.
For fatherland and king.
The Godhead, on his heav'nly
Eever'd and prais'd in song.
(Vith favour hears the grateful tone.
We raise with heart and tongue,
And next the sacred seraph choir.
Who holier accents sing.
Prefers the patriot's tuneful lyre.
For fatherland and king.
Baise, brothers, raise in union true,
Tlie wide-resounding cry;
rhey tell, by Heav'n, but virtues few.
Who land and king deny:
For man nor friend the heart can
Congeal'd its feeling spring.
That's cold when pray'r and music
For fatherland and king.
The heart beats quick, the blood
swells high
When thrills this cherish'd air,
No tones with these in beauty vie.
None strike the heart so fair.
These sacred strains to all belong ;
All hopes and wishes bring
In one accord, one sacred song
For fatherland and kinsr.
Protect, O God! watch o'er the land.
On which we breathe so free:
Where yet our children's cradles
And were their graves shaU be.
With hearts deep mov'd we humbly
From thy paternal hand, (pray.
Our country's weal, — thy power
For king and fatherland.
Protect, 0 God! preserve his throne,
That truth and right uphold;
Be aye its splendour brighter shown,
In virtue than in gold!
The sceptre that he wields sustain,,
And guide it in his hand;
Inspire, 0 God! our king maintain
Our king and fatherland.
