I see a dark sail on the horizon
Set under a black cloud that hides the sun

Bring me my broadsword and clear understanding
Bring me my cross of gold as a talisman

Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing
Take women and children and bed them down

Bring me my broadsword and clear understanding
Bring me my cross of gold as a talisman

Bless with a hard hearth and those who surround me
Bless the women and children, who firm our hands
Put our backs to the north wind, hold fast by the river
Sweet memories to drive us on for the motherland

I see a dark sail on the horizon
Set under a black cloud that hides the sun

So bring me my broadsword and clear understanding
Bring me my cross of gold as a talisman

So bring me my broadsword and a cross of gold as a talisman
