Netherlands National Anthem English Translation


Wilhelmus van Nassouwe

(William of Nassau)

Original Dutch Words:

Wilhelmus van Nassouwe

ben ik van Duitsen bloed

den vaderland getrouwe

blijf ik tot in den dood.

Een Prinse van Oranje

ben ik, vrij onverveerd,

den Koning van Hispanje

heb ik altijd geëerd.

Mijn schild ende betrouwen

zijt Gij, o God mijn Heer,

op U zo wil ik bouwen,

verlaat mij nimmermeer.

Dat ik doch vroom mag blijven,

uw dienaar t'aller stond,

de tirannie verdrijven

die mij mijn hert doorwondt.


William of Nassau am I, of German descent;

True to the fatherland I remain until death.

Prince of Orange am I, free and fearless.

To the King of Spain I have always given honour.

You, my God and Lord, are my shield, on You I rely.

On You I will build; never leave me,

So that I may remain pious, your servant at all moments,

Dispelling the tyranny that wounds my heart.
