Kun preĝo al Reĝo de l' reĝoj ni venas

Full Text

1 Kun preĝo al Reĝo de l' reĝoj ni venas,
Laŭdkrio al Dio eksonu el kor'.
Ni Lian grandan gloran nomon benas,
ĉar malamikon nian Li pelas for.

2 Li gvidas. Ni fidas la Diprovidencon.
Apogas nin, logas nin Lia bonvol'.
En nia Di' la vivo havas sencon.
Vin gardu de l' malbono, ho Di-popol'.

3 Konsento en tento neniam okazu
nek rego de l' peko nek ajna damaĝ'.
Tiranan forton nia Dio ĉasu.
Per fid' Li nin provizas kaj per kuraĝ'.

The tune KREMSER owes its origin to a sixteenth-century Dutch folk song "Ey, wilder den wilt." Later the tune was combined with the Dutch patriotic hymn 'Wilt heden nu treden" in Adrianus Valerius's Nederlandtsch Gedenckclanck [sic: Nederlandtsche Gedenckclank] published posthumously in 1626.
