Du bist Orplid, mein Land!

Language: German (Deutsch)

Du bist Orplid, mein Land!
Das ferne leuchtet;
Vom Meere dampfet dein besonnter Strand
Den Nebel, so der Götter Wange feuchtet.

Uralte Wasser steigen
Verjüngt um deine Hüften, Kind!
Vor deiner Gottheit beugen 
Sich Könige, die deine Wärter sind.

Weyla's song

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 You are Orplid, my land!
 the distant gleaming;
 From the sea, your sunny shore 
 steams with mist, which moistens the cheeks of gods.
 
 Ancient waters rise
 rejuvenated about your hips, child!
 To your divinity bow
 kings, who are your attendants.
