Strauja, strauja upe tecēj'

Strauja, strauja upe tecēj'
Gar brālīša namdurvīm.
 
Nedrīkstēju pāri jāti,
Baidās manis kumeliņ(i)s.
 
Jāj, brālīti, drošu pāri,
Neslīks tavis kumeliņ(i)s.
 
Apakšā ir baltas smiltis,
Virsū skaidrais ūdentiņ(i)s.
 
Zobens grieza baltu smilti,
Ūdens skaloj' kumeliņu.
 
Spoža spalva kumeļam(i),
Vēl spožāki iemauktiņi.
 
Translation

Swiftly, swiftly the river flowed

Swiftly, swiftly the river flowed
By my brother's door.
 
I couldn't ride across,
My horse is fearful.
 
Ride, brother, safely across,
Your horse won't drown.
 
At the bottom is white sand,
Over it, clear water.
 
My sword cut through the white sand,
The water washed my horse.
 
The horse has a bright coat,
And an even brighter bridle.
