Our island in the sea, like gems they seem to be,outstanding from a golden crown of blissful royalty.Though their people and their culture colorful may seem,they yet uniquely blend to be just one family.BridgeSo we, your people raise our voice in love and unityChorusDear Netherlands Antilles, so beautiful to me.I'm proud to be a part of you, a patriot I shall be.Yes Netherlands Antilles, I pledge my loyalty,To you always will be true; I say may God bless you.2. So blessed with sunny skies and clear welcoming seas,each island like a link that forms this chain of unity.May differ in our language, yet meet on common ground,When some say "Sweet Antilles", some say "Dushi Antia ta".3. Yes, proud are we to be identified with you,dear Netherlands Antilles, to you we will be true.So we declare and vow, with dignity and love,Our nation we will always serve, may God keep us as one.Papiamentu lyrics1. Sinku prenda den laman, e islanan di nos,d?rnando e korona di un aliansa ideal.Ounke hende i kultura tur kol? nan tin , nos mes aforma ?n famia den tur libertad.BridgePesei nos tur ta alsa bos ku amor i den unionChorusAntia Neerlandes, bunitesa sin igual.Ku orguyo mi ta defend? mi patria tan stim?.Antia Neerlandes, p'abo tur mi lealtat.Pa semper lo mi keda fiel, pais bendishon?2. Un shelu semper kla, laman ta invit?, e islanan tawowo dje kadena di unidat Idiomanan distinto, papi?Ku komprenshon, mes ternura: "Sweet antilles""Dushi Antia ta ",3. Ser parti di nos tera, ta orguyo sin mid?,Antia Neerlandes stim?, ku tur sinseridat,Pues nos ta rearfim? ku amor i dignidat,ku, dios dilanti, nos ta sirbi huntu nos pais.
