We shall not fall

Troubled days are coming
Courage and strength shall be tested
By the war axes of relentless enemies

Soldiers and walls shall be threatened
Honor and fiber shall be exposed to
The terror of death and
The raging screams

Children, women, elders and men shall cry
Before the sight of a painful and slow end
There shall be no rest
Hunger a constant companion
The winter shall cover our graves with eternal snow

Shall be this our end?
Won't we honor the great feats of our past?
Shall we allow damned warriors to profane our land?
Shall the freezing winds of death blow over our corpses?
Or shall we draw our swords and fight?

Let's offer them our steel and our arrows
We shall not fall
