So, let’s campaign! Let’s scatter our long oars -
Into the boundless woods and to the floods!
Where the gales howl, and the old pines roar,
Where the war feast triumph is longed by our blood!
The free way down the Volkhov and the Volga,
The wind will fill our woven sails.
Go on downwind, the northern wolves -
Into the eyes of crazy Lady Luck let’s gaze!
The river knights, the boyars of the Volga vastness,
Whose fiefdoms‘re everywhere – as far as you can see…
Warm hearts under the steel glint full of grandness
Lead you to the Not-Experienced-Before Sea!
Hey, raiders, though your plan is dangerous,
Strong will of yours is eminently agile.
The veche summoned you as the most venturous
To try your Glory taste with blades and wile!
Suntan makes darker, river gales make colder
The free voivodes’ front cuts of the blades.
Let’s take your oars, braves, fight, gain the Honour!
So, let’s campaign! Campaign!
