Nehalennia (Nehalennia )

English translation

Nehalennia

The day is over
The fog is lifting
The harbor disappears from sight
We are travelling to places
Heretofore unseen
The journey and our fate unknown
Searching for battle
Women and grog
Searching for eternal glory
Honor to the women
of life and death
Protect us on the open sea
 
FORWARD!
Over the seas
FORWARD!
Nehalennia
 
The sails are billowing
In a sou'westerly wind
The horizon is our goal
No tide is too strong
Or waves too high
Defying the biggest storm
A sacrifice made
On the Zeeland shore
At the altar of the goddess
Bringer of wealth
Trade and light
Show us your favor
 
Far from land
Over the sea
In the red evening light
The northern star
Shows the way
Towards our fate
