Lyrics - 003 Jääkärimarssi

Syvä iskumme on, viha voittamaton,
meil' armoa ei, kotimaata.
Koko onnemme kalpamme kärjessä on,
ei rintamme heltyä saata.
Sotahuutomme hurmaten maalle soi,
mi katkovi kahleitansa.
ei ennen uhmamme uupua voi,
kuin vapaa on Suomen kansa.

Kun painuvi päät muun kansan, maan,
me jääkärit uskoimme yhä.
Oli rinnassa yö, tuhat tuskaa,
vaan yks' aatos ylpeä, pyhä:
Me nousemme kostona Kullervon,
soma on sodan kohtalot koittaa.
Satu uusi nyt Suomesta syntyvä on,
se kasvaa, se ryntää, se voittaa

Häme, Karjala, Vienan rannat ja maa,
yks' suuri on Suomen valta.
Sen aatetta ei väkivoimat saa
pois Pohjolan taivaan alta.
Sen leijonalippua jääkärien
käsivarret jäntevät kantaa,
yli pauhun kenttien hurmeisten
päin nousevan Suomen rantaa.


in English:

Deep is our blow, our wrath invincible,
we have no mercy, no homeland.
Our whole happiness is at the tip of our swords,
our hearts may not give in.
Our war cry rings, enchanting the country,
which is severing its chains.
Our defiance may not tire,
until the people of Finland are free.

When lowered with despair were heads of the other citizens, the country,
we Jägers still believed.
There was a dark night in the heart, a thousands pains,
but one thought proud, holy:
We shall rise as the revenge of Kullervo,
it is sweet to pass the fates of war.
A new tale of Finland is to be born,
it grows, it rushes, it wins.

Häme, Karelia, shores and lands of Viena,
one great is Finland´s reign.
Its ideology can´t be driven by brute force,
away from beneath the northern sky.
Its Lion Flag is carried
by strong hands of Jägers,
Over thunderous, gory fields
towards the coast of rising Finland.

Lyrics

A famous Finnish march song, written by Nobel-awarded writer F.E.Sillanpää and composed by Aimo Mustonen. Translation:

Saluting the home neighbourhood,
let this song echo forth,
over fields, lakes and fells
all the way from Hanko to Petsamo.*

|: Our steps have the same echo, yes, our instinct feels it, as our forefathers gaze their sons, from below the earth and the hills. :|

Dear lad on my side,
surely you know what brought us here.
Gladly we rushed there,
where the common calling rang.

|: A way known by grandfathers, is now the way of their descendants, when threatened is our fatherland, home chores will have to leave behind. :|

What treasures there is in Finland,
freedom is certainly the most valuable.
Every man here has **
the right to fall or fight.

|: So hear you children and seniors, you mothers, brides also, as long as there is a man standing, you shall have a guarded home. :|

* the southernmost and former northernmost points of Finland. Nuorgam is nowadays the northernmost point.

** Finland has still a conscription army.

Lyrics

"On Pohjolan hangissa meill' isänmaa
sen rannalla loimuta lietemme saa
käs' säilöjä käyttäiss' on varttunut siell'
on kunniall', uskolle hehkunut miel'

Kun ratsujamme Nevan vuossa juotettihin
Se ui kuni häihin yli Veikselinkin;
Se kalpamme kostavan Reinille toi
ja Tonavasta keisarin maljan se joi !"

Kun raunion, tuhkan yli lennetähän,
niin kaviotpa loimun luo säihkyävän'
Joka iskumme välkkyy kuin aamun koi
ja vapauden puolesta säilämme soi!"

---

Our homeland lies in the snows of the North;
the hearth of the home glowing warm and strong
Our hand has grown sure with playing the sword
and honour and pure faith lies in our record

At the river Neva our mounts did draw their first blood
like in a wedding march they went across the Vistula flood
Our swords they did bring to the Rhineland's coast
and by the Danube they raised up the Emperor's toast!

---

Melody from 1600's, lyrics by Zacharias Topelius, 1874.
The painting is Gustaf Adolf vid Lützen by Carl Wahlbom (1810 - 1858).
