Hymne des Nations*

  1. O peuples! Pourquoi faire la guerre. 1. Waarom doodt de eene mensch den ander

Est-il utile de tuer?                                                                               Is niet het leven schooner lot?

Nous sommes sur la terre tous frères,                                              Is broederliefde dan voor elkander

Des êtres qui doivent s’aimer!                                                           Niet voor de menschheid ’t hoogst gebod?

Regardez bien, le monde est immense,                                            O, zie toch eens de eindelooze aarde,

On peut y vivre avec l ‘espérance.                                                    Hoe die voor ieder overvloed baarde,

Et vivre en se tendant les bras,                                                          Geen haat meer en geen bitterheid

Sans rancoeur ici bas.                                                                          En mijdt broederstrijd.

Plus de haine, plus de combats.                                                        Dat geen oorlogskreet klink’ in ‘t rond

Ah! fuyons le noir trépas.                                                                   Vrede ! Juich van mond tot mond.
