Kádár István

Language: Hungarian (Magyar)

Szërnyű nagy romlásra készült Pannónia,
Kinek mint tëngërnek mëgáradott habja.
Sok búnak, bánatnak körülvëtt nagy árja,
Mert a vitézëknek esëtt ma ëgy híja.

Fölemelé Kádár szëmeit az égre,
Mondván: ,,Uram Jézus, jöjj segítségëmre!
Nosza jó katonák, harcoljunk két kézre!
Mert nëm látok embërt jőni segítségre.``

Az zászlótartónak fëlszóval kiáltja:
,,Vidd el, fiam, vidd el az zászlót más útra!
Hogy el në veszszën mi urunk kevés hadja,
Mert Magyar országért mëg halok én még ma!

Kiontom vérëmet én szëgény hazámért,
Ezënről mëghalok kedves nëmzetëmért.
Nëm szánok érette bizony ontani vért,
Mert én a Krisztustól vëszëk jutalmat, bért.

Kádár István

Language: English after the Hungarian (Magyar)

Panonia prepared for great destruction.
The waves of the sea would cease to exist;
They would pay the price for their sins with remorse.
The heros would give their last measure of sacrifice.

Kadar lifted his eyes to the sky
And prayed, "Jesus my lord, help me,
We haven't got enough soldiers,
And no sign of any immediate help."

To the flag-bearer he shouts:
"My son, take the flag by another route-,
so it will be preserved, and not be lost;
Because today I will die for my beloved country. 

I will bleed for my poor country;
I will gladly die for my dear country;
I will not have any remorse for my sacrifice
Because Jesus will reward me for it."
