Kung Eriks sista visa

Language: Swedish (Svenska)

Vad båtar oss gråt, vad hjälper oss rop,
kung Johan och Gud, de hålla ihop,
kung Johan gav mig blacken
och Gud sin nåd med detta hopp:
ditt fånghus är din egen kropp,
och villst du ur ditt fånghus opp,
så kanst du bräcka nacken.

Erik‑kuninkaan viimeinen laulu

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the Swedish (Svenska)

Mitä meitä hyödyttää itku, mitä auttaa avunhuuto,
Juhana-kuningas ja Jumala ovat liitossa keskenään,
kuningas pani minut jalkapuuhun
ja Jumala armossaan antoi tämän verran toivoa:
sinun vankilasi on oma ruumiisi,
ja jos tahdot päästä siitä pois,
pääset kyllä, kunhan taitat niskasi.
