Anthem Lyrics

Noble Belgique, * jamais terre ch*rie

A toi nos coeurs, * toi nos bras.

Par le sang pur r*pandu pour toi, Patrie,

nous le jurons d'un seul cri: tu vivras!

Tu vivras toujours grande et belle,

Et ton invincible unit* aura pour devise immortelle,

Le Roi, La Loi, La Libert*

aura pour devise immortelle,

Le Roi, la Loi, la Libert* (ter)



And here are the words (in Dutch)



Het Belgisch Volkslied (Brabanconne)





O dierbaar Belg*e, o heilig land der Vad(e)ren,

Onze ziel en ons hart zijn U gewijd,

Aanvaard ons kracht en het bloed van ons ad(e)ren,

Wees ons doel in arbeid en in strijd,

Bloei, o land, in eendracht niet te breken,

Wees immer U zelf, en ongeknecht,

Het woord getrouw dat ge onbevreesd moogt spreken.

Voor Vorst, voor vrijheid en voor recht.

Het woord getrouw dat ge onbevreesd moogt spreken.

Voor Vorst, voor vrijheid en voor recht, voor

Vorst, voor vrijheid en voor recht, voor Vorst,

voor vrijheid en voor recht.
