Waves of Onego Lake

Waves of Onego Lake

Song by Georg de Godzinsky
Lyrics by Kerttu Mustonen
Sung by Georg Malmsten

Strike the waves of the vast Onego Lake,
they swing thus telling:
a new morning dawn will rise
over the lands of White Sea Karelia and Olonets Karelia.
They heard the beautiful playing
that was brought by the frenzy of the battle.
Now a stable legion
its shores again guard.

Quietly lulled the Onego Lake its wawes,
tire at the shore
in an archipelago of fairy tales.
You far away, my love,
I here reminisce about
once I shall fetch
to the boat of our happiness.

Strike the waves of the vast Onego Lake,
they swing thus telling:
tribesmen brought to the land of Karelia
now already a new kantele.
They stepped from victory to victory
and bet like a violent wind,
till the intact and
wonderful land was left here.
