Roll, streamy Carun

Language: English

Roll, streamy Carun, 
roll in joy,
the sons of battle fled!
The steed is not seen on our fields;
the wings of their pride
spread in other lands.
The sun will now rise in peace,
and the shadows descend in joy.
The voice of the chace will be heard;
the shields hang in the hall.
Our delight will be in the war of the ocean,
our hands shall grow red in the blood of Lochlin.
Roll, streamy Carun, 
roll in joy,
the sons of battle fled!
