Lyrics in Dutch:

Arkel is mijn vaderland
Mijn dierbare vaderland voor altijd
Ik zou er nooit meer weg kunnen
Aan dit land ben ik verknocht

Voor Prins en het ganse Rijk
Ben ik bereid alles te doen
Want Arkel is mijn vaderland
En dat blijft het voor altijd

Dit land zal ik liefhebben
Dit is onvoorwaardelijk
Dit land zal ik dienen
Want Arkel is mijn vaderland
En dat blijft het voor altijd
Zo lang als ik leef.

Arkel is mijn vaderland
Mijn dierbare vaderland voor altijd
Ja, Arkel is mijn vaderland
En dat blijft het voor altijd

Voor Prins en het ganse Rijk
Ben ik bereid alles te doen
Ik zou er nooit meer weg kunnen
Aan dit land ben ik verknocht

Ja, Arkel is mijn vaderland
En dat blijft het voor altijd (3x)
