Far from the western side
Over the meadows and fields
The wind casts a plague in a powerful voice

Through waving flags
And sounds of weapons
War rides upon his fiery steed

The earth and sky blend together
The sounds of war echo
Two walls of men face one another

On the horizon
Where the weapons glisten bright
In gruesome death go both allies and foes

Swords lie in heaps
Springs flow blood red
The sky weeps upon the soil

Cries of pain
In battle heroes fall
The red horseman sows the seeds of death

Laments and shouting fade away
Motionless bodies lie upon the ground
The black cloud stirs its dance of death over them

Clouds are weeping
Slowly over the field
The fog rises under the clouds

God, do not let us remain here
Where the men as oaks fall
Should I am the one to fall
Take me in your cradle
