Kwiindawo zeFlanders iipoppies ziyavuthela
Phakathi kweminqamlezo, umqolo kumqolo,
Oko kuphawula indawo yethu; nasesibhakabhakeni
Iilark, zisacula ngesibindi, ziyabhabha
Unqabile weva phakathi kwemipu engezantsi.

Singabafileyo. Kwiintsuku ezimfutshane ezidlulileyo
Sasihlala, saziva kusisa, sabona ukukhanya kwelanga,
Sithandwa kwaye sithandwa, kwaye ngoku siyaxoka
Kwiindawo zeFlanders.

Thatha ingxabano yethu notshaba:
Kuwe kwizandla ezingaphumeleliyo siyaphosa
Itotshi ube ngowakho ukuyibamba phezulu.
Ukuba wophula ukholo kunye nathi esifa
Asiyi kulala, nangona iipapa zikhula
Kwiindawo zeFlanders.
