Boervolk | Ons vir jou Suid-Afrika | Uit die blou van onse Hemel, uit die diepte van ons see. Oor ons ewige gebergtes waar die kranse antwoord gee. Deur ons ver verlate vlaktes, met die kreun van Ossewa. Ruis die stem van ons geliefde, vir ons land Suid-Afrika. Ons sal antwoord op jou roepstem, ons sal offer wat jy vra: ons sal lewe, ons sal sterwe, ons vir jou Suid-Afrika. In die murg van ons gebeente, in ons hart en siel en gees. In ons roem op ons verlede, in ons hoop op wat sal wees.
