The Lower Saxony Song

From the Weser to the Elbe, from the Harz to the sea,
stand Lower Saxony's sons, a firm castle and defense.
Firm as our oaks we stand firm all the time,
when storms roar over the German fatherland.
We are the Lower Saxons, storm-proof and earthy,
Heil Herzog Widukind Stamm.

Where did the Roman henchmen fall? Where did the Welsh brood sink?
In Lower Saxony's mountains, in Lower Saxony's fury.
Who threw down the Roman eagle in the sand?
Who held freedom high in the German fatherland?
That was the Lower Saxons, stubborn and earthy,
Heil Herzog Widukind Stamm.

Many thousands of men once died on the blooming red heath,
for Lower Saxony's loyalty they were banished by the Franks.
Many thousand brothers fell from the executioner's hand,
many thousand brothers for their Lower Saxony land.
These were the Lower Saxons, stubborn and earthy,
Heil Herzog Widukind Stamm.

From the fathers' blood and wounds grows the sons' heroism.
Lower Saxony shall bear witness: For freedom, good and blood!
Firm as our oaks we stand all time,
when storms roar over the German fatherland.
We are the Lower Saxons, storm-proof and earth-growing,
Heil Herzog Widukind Stamm.
