A time of religion and war,
Legends tell the tale of a lion
This beast in the shape of a man,
With a dream to rule sea and land

And all those who stand in his way,
Will die, by God and victorious arms
With the righteous that follows him south,
Once more, set ashore, to war

Legends have taught, battles fought,
This lion has no fear at heart
Lion come forth, come from the north,
Come from the no-o-o-o-ort

Gustavus! Adolphus!
(Gustavus Adolphus go forth, libera, impera)
Libera et impera!
Acerbus et ingens!
(Acerbus et ingens leo, libera, impera)
Augusta per augusta

A storm over Europe unleashed,
Dawn of war, a trail of destruction
The power of Rome won't prevail,
See the catholics shiver and shake

The future of warfare unveiled,
Showed the way, that we still walk today
Der Lцwe aus Mitternacht comes,
Once more, he is here, for war

Stories of old, truth unfold,
Control over Europe he holds
Freedom he'll bring,
Lion and king, lion and king

Mighty eagle rule alone
Liberator claim the throne
Lion from the northern land
Take the scepter, from it's hand
Oh, oh, oh you lion from the north,
Ooooh you lion from the north
