History

As Dutch Anthem

At the foundation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in 1815, it was decided that a national anthem was needed. The hymn Het Wilhelmus – which is the national anthem today – was already well known in the time of the Dutch Republic. At that time, however, it was more of a party or faction hymn than a national one, being associated with and glorifying the House of Orange – which in the politics of the 17th and 18th Century Netherlands had enthusiastic supporters but also bitter foes. In particular, the Wilhelmus was unpopular with the anti-Orangist Patriot party, which dominated the country (under French tutelage) for a considerable time.

Following the fall of Napoleon, with the House of Orange attaining the status of Monarchs which they lacked before, they desired to make a fresh start and adopt a politically neutral hymn rather than what had been their factional song. Moreover, a new song might also be acceptable to the Catholic inhabitants of the Southern Netherlands with which the Dutch were united in 1815 to form the United Kingdom of the Netherlands; the Wilhelmus might be interpreted as expressing Calvinist sentiments.

A competition was accordingly organized by Admiral Jan Hendrik van Kinsbergen which was won by the Dutch poet Hendrik Tollens (1780–1856) with his poem Wien Neerlandsch bloed …, which, after some failed attempts by less gifted composers, was set to music by Johann Wilhelm Wilms (1772–1847), a Dutch-German expatriate living in Amsterdam.

There were two versions, both shown below. The first is the original one, the second a changed version created for the reign of Queen Wilhelmina; it modernised the language, adapted the text to the fact there was now a queen instead of a king and also replaced the controversial second line van vreemde smetten vrij ("free from foreign taint").

Despite the adoption of the new anthem Het Wilhelmus remained popular and was played at the investiture of Queen Wilhelmina in 1898.

Wien Neêrlands bloed was officially replaced by Het Wilhelmus on 10 May 1932, though it remained in use by the Royal Netherlands Navy and Army until 1939. The replacement had much to do with the fact the "new" 1815 anthem had become even more controversial than the Wilhelmus had been, with Socialists refusing to sing it.

Campinian Anthem

Before its adopted as the anthem. It was a well known Campinian patriotic song, The anthem replaced the Huzarenmars, The lyrics were written by Shady Morsi and Tomek Sloekers.

Lyrics

1. Wien Campiniaansche bloed in de aders vloeit,
Van vreemde smetten vrij,
Wiens hart voor god vaderland en prins gloeit,
Staant voor het Volk
Hij stell' met ons, vereend van zin,
Met onbeklemde borst,
Het godgevallig feestlied in
Voor vaderland en vorst.

De Godheid, op zijn hemeltroon,
Bezongen en vereerd,
Houdt gunstig ook naar onzen toon
Het heilig oor gekeerd:
Zij geeft het eerst, na 't zalig koor,
Dat hooger snaren spant,
Het rond en hartig lied gehoor
Voor vorst en vaderland.

3. Stort uit dan, broeders, eens van zin,
Dien hoogverhoorden kreet;
Hij telt bij God een deugd te min,
Die land en vorst vergeet;
Hij gloeit voor mensch en broeder niet
In de onbewogen borst,
Die koel blijft bij gebed en lied
Voor vaderland en vorst.

4. Ons klopt het hart, ons zwelt het bloed,
Bij 't rijzen van dien toon:
Geen ander klinkt ons vol gemoed,
Ons kloppend hart zoo schoon:
Hier smelt het eerst, het dierst belang
Van allen staat en stand
Tot één gevoel in d'eigen zang
Voor vorst en vaderland.

5. Bescherm, o God! bewaak den grond,
Waarop onze adem gaat;
De plek, waar onze wieg op stond,
Waar eens ons graf op staat.
Wij smeeken van uw vaderhand,
Met diep geroerde borst,
Behoud voor 't lieve vaderland,
Voor vaderland en vorst.

6. Bescherm hem, God! bewaak zijn troon,
Op duurzaam regt gebouwd;
Blink' altoos in ons oog zijn kroon
Nog meer door deugd dan goud!
Steun Gij den scepter, dien hij torscht,
Bestier hem in zijn hand;
Beziel, o God! bewaar den vorst,
Den vorst en 't vaderland.

7. Van hier, van hier wat wenschen smeedt
Voor een van beide alleen:
Voor ons gevoel, in lief en leed,
Zijn land en koning één.
Verhoor, o God! zijn aanroep niet,
Wie ooit hen scheiden dorst,
Maar hoor het één, het eigen lied
Voor vaderland en vorst.

8. Dring' luid, van uit ons feestgedruisch,
Die beê uw hemel in:
Bewaar den vorst, bewaar zijn huis
En ons, zijn huisgezin.
Doe nog ons laatst, ons jongst gezang
Dien eigen wensch gestand:
Bewaar, o God! den prins lang
En 't lieve vaderland.

English

Whoever has Campinian blood flowing in their veins,
Free of foreign blemishes;
Whose heart glows for God Prince and Fatherland,
Rejoice in song as we do!
He sings with us, united in purpose,
At the top of his voice
This festive song, pleasing to God,
For fatherland and prince (2x)

The divinity on his heavenly throne
Serenaded and honoured
Favourably disposed to our sound
Keeps the holy ear turned:
She sings first-rate, in conjunction with the heavenly choir
Operating on a higher plain
This full and hearty song
For God and fatherland (2x)

Pour out therefore, brethren, once of sense,
then far high heard cry;
He counts on God a little virtue,
Sovereign country and forget that;
He glows in man and brother had not
In the unmoving chest,
That cool with prayer and song
For Fatherland and monarchy.

Our heart beats, swells our blood,
When it raised from this show:
No other sounds filled our minds,
Our heart so beautiful:
Here melts first, the importance species of animals
Of all state and state
To a sense of their own vocal
For prince and nation.

Protect, O God! guard the ground,
Which is our breath;
The place where our cradle stood,
Where once our graves on it.
We beg your father's hand,
Stirred with deep chest,
Conservation for the dear fatherland,
For Fatherland and monarchy.

Protect him, God! guard his throne;
Right to sustainable construction;
Blink "always in our eye crown
Even more by virtue than gold!
You support the scepter, which he carried,
Govern him in his hand;
Infuse, O God! save the prince,
The prince and it homeland.

From here, here are some wishes Forge
Alone for either:
We feel, in weal and woe,
His country and Prince.
Hear, O God! call are not
Who ever separate them thirsty,
But listen to one's own song
For Fatherland and monarchy.

Pervade loudly, from within our festive roar
This prayer unto heaven
Protect the monarch, protect his House
And us, his family
Redeem your promise with the very same wish in our latest song
Protect, oh Lord, for ever the Prince
And the beloved fatherland (2x)
