Die Eisenfaust am Lanzenschaft

Die Eisenfaust am Lanzenschaft,
Die Zügel in der Linken,
So sprengt des Reiches Ritterschaft
Und ihre Schwerter blinken.
 
| Heja, heja, heja! Heja! Und ihre Schwerter blinken. |
 
Das Balkenkreuz, das schwarze, fliegt
Voran auf weißem Grunde,
Verloren zwar, doch unbesiegt.
So klingt uns seine Kunde.
 
| Heja, heja, heja! Heja! So klingt uns seine Kunde. |
 
Es flattert hell im Morgenwind
Und grüßt der Grenzen Lande,
Grüßt die, die uns're Brüder sind,
Trotz Schmach und Not und Schande.
 
| Heja, heja, heja! Heja! Trotz Schmach und Not und Schande. |
 
Es fliegt voraus im Ritterskleid
Und mahnet uns zu streiten,
Für die verlorne Herrlichkeit,
Drum Wimpel flieg, wir reiten.
 
| Heja, heja, heja! Heja! Drum Wimpel flieg, wir reiten. |

The Iron Fist on the Lance Shaft

The iron fist on the lance shaft
The reins on the left
So advances the Empire's Knighthood
And their swords are flashing.
 
| Heya, heya, heya! Heya! And their swords are flashing. |
 
The cross pattee, the black one, is flying
Forward on a white background,
May be lost, but not defeated
That's how its lore sounds to us.
 
| Heya, heya, heya! Heya! That's how its lore sounds to us. |
 
It flutters bright in the morning breeze
And greets the borderlands,
Greets those who are our brethern
In spite of dishonour, plight and shame.
 
| Heya, heya, heya! Heya! In spite of dishonour, plight and shame. |
 
It flies ahead in the knight's dress
And encourages us to fight,
For the lost splendour,
Therefore, fly pennants, we ride.
 
| Heya, heya, heya! Heya! Therefore, fly pennants, we ride. |
 
Thanks!
