And Deeds Live On

Set out to the ocean hoping to sail
where the winds of hope, they blow
Knowing dangers burden us on our way
to the west we turn our bows
The Trinidad became our home...
but to this land we will return

In this dawn...
the sun may shine in the sky
but out there the thunder awaits
Set sail before it's too late

Tales of damnation and cruel castigation
will have to succumb to this day
New dawn is rising beyond the horizon
forcing the tail-winds prevail
Crossing the ocean where
unseen horizons appear...

Tuulet veivät kauas luota maan
taivaankannen tietä seuraamaan
Vielä kerran häilyy se mielessäin
jos koskaan sammuen silmistäin
Tuo aika autuuden ja niin...
voitokas on muistomme kuolematon

In March of '20 we were bound to stop
by the shore of Patagonia
The vessels settled in San Julian
as winter came to thee, Magellan

We lost The Santiago... but others carried on
and eagerly strived to the sea
Tierra del Fuego we finally left behind
and the ocean brought us months of grief
The San Antonio had headed back to Spain

Thought our passage would be over soon
as we reached The Philippines
Dwellers of the isle were waging a war
and the fate was unforeseen
Thus he died, away from home
though his tries and deeds live on...

Tuulet veivät kauas luota maan
taivaankannen tietä seuraamaan
Vielä kerran häilyy se mielessäin
jos koskaan sammuen silmistäin
Tuo aika autuuden ja niin...
voitokas on muistomme kuolematon
ja niin aava taas on tyyni ja koskematon
