The mighty and fearless line up on both sides of the clash:
In hand are spears, swords, shields and hammers held,
In heart are courage, love, strength and spirit felt,
The desire for victory in unknown grounds burns blood red in the souls of the oncoming,
The flame to defend the fatherland blazes fire red in the depth of the forsaken retreating;
In hand and heart was the battle of Methven won and lost that day.
