Dem dunkeln Schoß der heilgen Erde
[Vertrauen wir der Hände Tat]1
Vertraut der Sämann seine Saat
Und hofft, daß sie entkeimen werde
Zum Segen, nach des Himmels Rat.
Noch köstlicheren Samen bergen
Wir trauernd in der Erde Schoß,
Und hoffen, dass er aus den Särgen
Erblühen soll zu schönerm Los.

De donk're schoot der heil'ge aarde
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the German (Deutsch) 
De donk're schoot der heil'ge aarde
[Vertrouwen toe wij d' arbeidsdaad]1
Vertrouwt de zaaier toe het zaad,
En hoopt dat het ontkiemt tot waarde,
Tot zegen, naar des hemels raad.
Nog waardevoller zaaigoed bergen
Wij treurend nu in aardes schoot,
En hopen dat het uit de zerken
Ontluiken zal in schoonheid groot.
