Roll, streamy Carun
Language: English 
Available translation(s): CAT
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!

Corre, impetuós Carun
Language: Catalan (Català)  after the English 
Corre, impetuós Carun,
passa corrents en la joia;
els fills de la batalla han fugit!
Ja no es veuen corsers als nostres camps;
les ales de llur arrogància
s’han estès per altres terres.
Ara el sol sortirà en pau,
i les ombres davallaran en la joia.
La veu de la cacera es deixarà sentir;
els escuts penjaran a les sales.
Ens alegrarem a la guerra del mar,
les nostres mans vermelles de sang de Lochlin.
 Corre, impetuós Carun,
passa corrents en la joia;
els fills de la batalla han fugit!
