A time of religion and war
Legends tell the tale of a lion
This beast in the shape of a man
With a dream to rule sea and land
And all those who stand in his way
Will die by God and victorious arms
With the righteous that follows him south
Once more set ashore to war
Legends have taught battles fought
This lion has no fear at heart
Lion come forth come from the north
Come from the no-o-o-o-ort
Gustavus Adolphus
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth libera impera)
Libera et impera
Acerbus et ingens
(Acerbus et ingens leo libera impera)
Augusta per augusta
A storm over Europe unleashed
Dawn of war a trail of destruction
The power of Rome won't prevail
See the catholics shiver and shake
The future of warfare unveiled
Showed the way that we still walk today
Der Lwe aus Mitternacht comes
Once more he is here for war
Stories of old truth unfold
Control over Europe he holds
Freedom he'll bring
Lion and king lion and king
Gustavus Adolphus
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth libera impera)
Libera et impera
Acerbus et ingens
(Acerbus et ingens leo libera impera)
Augusta per augusta [X2]
Mighty eagle rule alone
Liberator claim the throne
Lion from the northern land
Take the scepter from its hand [X4]
(Oh oh oh you lion from the north
Ooooooooh you lion from the north)
Legends have taught battles fought
This lion has no fear at heart
Lion come forth come from the north
Come from the no-o-o-o-ort
Gustavus Adolphus
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth libera impera)
Libera et impera
Acerbus et ingens
(Acerbus et ingens leo libera impera)
Augusta per augusta [X2]
