Varjele vakainen luoja,
Kaitse kaunoinen Jumala,
Kavioista vainovarsain,
Sorkista sotahevosten!

Varjele vakainen luoja,
Kaitse kaunoinen Jumala,
Rauan valkian varasta,
Terän tuiman tutkamesta,
Tykin suuren suun e'estä,
Rautakirnujen kiasta!

Varjele vakainen luoja,
Kaitse kaunoinen Jumala,
Suurilta sotakeoilta,
Uron tappotanterilta,
Jossa lyiy miestä lyöpi,
Tinapalli paiskoavi;
Jossa pää pahoin menevi,
Sekä kaula katkiavi,
Hivus hieno lankiavi,
Tukka turhi'in tulevi!

PRAYER AGAINST WAR

Keep us, steadfast Creator
and guard us, fair God
from the hoofs of battle-foals
the trotters of war-horses!

Keep us, steadfast Creator
and guard us, fair God
from white iron's hoard
the harsh blade's tip
from before the big cannon's mouth
the jaws of the iron churns!

Keep us, steadfast Creator
and guard us, fair God
from great battlefields
from a fellow's killing-grounds
where lead smites a man
the tin ball hurls him
where his head goes ill
and his neck breaks too
and his fine hair falls
his locks come to grief!

BEWAHRE UNS, GOTT, VOR DEM KRIEGE

Schütze uns, erhabener Schöpfer,
Gott des Himmels, o bewahr uns
vor der Rösser Kriegsgetrabe,
vor dem Huf der Schlachtengäule!

Schütze uns, erhabener Schöpfer,
Gott des Himmels, o bewahr uns
vor dem Feuer der Haubitze,
vor der blanken Waffen Spitze,
vor der Mündung der Kanone,
vor der Eisenröhre Rachen!

Schütze uns, erhabener Schöpfer,
Gott des Himmels, o bewahr uns,
schirm uns vor dem Schlachtgetümmel,
vor der hehren Helden Walstatt,
wo den Mann das Blei durchlöchert,
wo die Kugel ihn dahinrafft,
wo sein Kopf dem Tod geweiht ist,
wo sie das Genick ihm brechen,
wo sie ihn zu Boden strecken,
wo sie kalt ihn niedermachen.
