Far away, where the sunshine never fades There lies this land, the greatest of tales A strong golden gate now slowly moves aside In walks a man, exhausted by the tide Finally, I've reached my destiny I've crossed the western sea for the land of hope and glory In front of me stands the glorious grand city A feeling that I can breathe, and be free Surrounding golden walls, finest marble covers the halls Silver-plated streets that glimmer and shine Statues, monuments and fountains filled with wine And trees nearly touching the sky In the land of hope and glory I head to the greatest hall, Take a deep breath and open the door Is this the land of hope and glory? Sitting on a golden throne, An ape holding a sceptre of bone It utters: "The die is cast." Surrounding golden walls... Reminiscence Echoes from the homeland Kaikuen laulu raikaa takaa ulapan Kotimaan rannat kutsuu poikaa Pohjolan Hoist the sails, it's time to leave these lands behind Rain or hail won't stop me, I have made up my mind Surrounded by dark emptiness The sea is cold and merciless All alone, I'm heading home Over the vast sea, wide and so deep Ahti I greet thee, I'm heading home! The wind is rising, cold and biting Ilmarinen I greet thee Northern shores - I'm home No surrounding golden walls, no marble covered halls No silver-plated streets that glimmer and shine No statues, monuments nor fountains filled with wine Only trees touching the sky Far away, where sunshine never fades There lies this land, the greatest of tales
