Dr. Harry van Dyke, professor of history emeritus, Redeemer University College, published an English translation of Kuyper’s poem in his essay “Standing in the Kuyperian Tradition”:

My life is ruled by but one passion,

one higher urge drives will and soul.

My breath may stop before I ever

allow that sacred urge to fall.

’Tis to affirm God’s holy statutes

in church and state, in home and school,

despite the world’s strong remonstrations,

to bless our people with his rule.

’Tis to engrave God’s holy order,

heard in Creation and the Word,

upon the nation’s public conscience,

till God is once again its Lord.

A few citations from the 1874 memorandum to Groen van Prinsterer (see 1992.01, app. 9) have also been translated and included on pages 17–18.
