It is the national anthem of the Republic since its establishment in 2007. It is a prayer for the unity of the peoples of the low countries.

Original Dutch English translation

Heer, laat het prinsenvolk der oude Nederlanden

Niet ondergaan in haat, in broedertwist en schande;

Maak dat uit de oude bron nieuw leven nogmaals vloeit,

Schenk ons de taaie kracht om fier, vol vroom vertrouwen,

Met nooit gebroken moed ons land herop te bouwen;

Tot statig als een eik voor U ons volk herbloeit.

Lord, let the people of princes of the ancient Netherlands (or low lands)

Not perish in hatred, blood feud and shame;

From the ancient source, make new life flow once again,

Give us the tough strength to proudly and full of pious confidence,

With never broken courage, rebuild our land;

Until, noble as an oak, our people re-blooms for You.
