O salutaris hostia,

qui vitam sine termino,
Nobis donet in patria.

O heilig, heilzaam offerlam
Language: Dutch (Nederlands)  after the Latin 
O heilig, heilzaam offerlam.
Dat opent ons de hemelpoort,
Oorlogen drukken zwaar op ons,
Geef kracht en help ons moedig voort.
De ene en drievoud'ge Heer
Zij eeuwig roem en hart verpand;
Hij die ons leven zonder eind
Moge schenken in het vaderland.
