Best Poem of Peter Andreas Heiberg

Marseillasen

Op, I brave Marseillaner,
Op at kæmpe hver Galliens Mand,
Tyranniets det blodige Banner
Vaier over vort Fædreneland.
Hører I Lyden af Fjendens Kanoner?
Hører I ei, hvor han brøler Harm?
Snart myrder han i Eders Arm
Eders Børn, Eders Fædre og Koner.
Til Vaaben, i Gevær,
Til Vaaben En og Hver,
Afsted, afsted, de Voldsmænds Blod
Skal strømme for vor Fod.

Hvad vil disse Horder af Slaver
Disse Bander af kronede Mænd?
Siig, for hvem man vel Lænken tillaver,
Til hvis Hænder man smedede den?
Franske, høimodige Franske, for Eder! ...
