lyrics

Seafarer

I dream of a foreign land
Far beyond the sea – beyond the world known to us
The call of freedom and wealth – I need to embark!
And travel to find new air that I can breathe
A new home till the end of days.

Lo! A beauty of utmost brilliance
Lo! A sign of craftsman perfection
Lo! A home for the untamed sea
Lo! A bridge be thou to me

Our shores lie astern and the sea before us.
I don’t weep, but sadness still prevails
I leave a world of death and oppression
A new hope – a sail to set us free

Lo! A world of utmost brilliance
Lo! A sign of divine perfection
Lo! A home for a new planted seed
Lo! A home be thou to me


With thunder, darkness and lightning strikes
He makes the peaceful waves dreadful spikes
No peace at sea, no peace at land
Shall we meet our doom from our maker’s hand?

Donnerschlag auf Donnerschlag.
Das Schiff es weint, krächzt und ächzt.
Geschlagen von der Macht der See
mag es niemals untergehn.

The roaring waves, the roaring thunder
when the heavens, oh god, they burst asunder.
But I dream on – (I) dream of the land of wonder.
Of richness unseen I take from yonder.
I dream on, I dream on.

Brechender Balken und schreiender Mensch
Der Traum vom Aufbruch zerdrückt?
Meeresberge fordern unseren Willen
Doch die Kraft des Selbst ist nicht zu stillen.

The roaring waves, the roaring thunder
when the heavens, oh god, they burst asunder.
But I dream on – I dream of the land of wonder.
Of richness unseen I take from yonder.
I dream on, I dream on.

The sound of birds caresses my ear
And then the horizons end. And then the horizons end!
The sea grows shallow
We have touched soil.
The soil of a new world. The soil of a new world!

Lo! These beautiful shores
Lo! Mountains and forests of awe
Lo! New lands of untamed richness
Lo! Lands of new destiny

We set foot on these lands, these lands beyond the sea
These lands beyond the sea – a new home in our newfound dream
A dream that is destined to last for all eternity
Until the end of days – to mark the end of tyranny
