The day draws close to an end
It is time for sunset
A grim silence falls over the place
Only the birds of passage cry

Through the forests and over the fields
The night spreads out its cover
Over the black vault of the heaven
The sons of God ride

In the forests and within the swamps
Where beasts are crying loudly
Through the darkness and through the fog
The dark horseman rides his steed

Under his horse’s heavy footfall
The earth rumbles and stone breaks
Where the dark rider has been
Even the forest spring runs dry

Lies the village in a deep sleep
Young and old are asleep
The sword of the rider shines
His eyes glow in the darkness

Onward the rider rushes
Everything dies where his sword strikes
No one to stand in his way
Everyone run for your life
