The Butch Soldiers' Sotiff.
The lion-banner still is beaming,
Our fathers erst by Nieuwpoort bore;
That flag, our Navy's pride, is streaming.
That floated once on Chatham's shore.
In ev'ry breast still glows undying
The flame, that warm'd our fathers' band.
With which a nation, death defying,
Still guards from foreign force her strand.
Rise Neerland's sons in virtue steeled,
To combat for your dearest good;
Batavia's glorious name be sealed.
With heroes' deeds and heroes' blood!
What, though no victory's palm elate us.
To death decreed by wayward fate,
Europa's praise and honour wait us.
She owns Batavia's children great.
Pursue, ye Pow'rs! in league array'd,
A strife of shame and perfidy;
Here too a hallow'd league is made,
We've sworn to triumph or to die.
Let Nassau's Prince in-God confiding.
Lead boldly on his trusty band.
His skill and fame our courage guiding,
A w»ll of steel we'll dauntless stand.
To might and numbers valour ceding.
May Victory's wreath with honour lose;
But thousands of our foemen bleeding,
Shall, cold in death, with us repose!
Ere foreign bands, in conquering pride,
Shall Bato's sacred ground profane.
Let Neerland sink 'neath Oceans tide,
Morass and moor return again.
From Van Dam van Issei.t.
the end.
