English
Beneath the gazing stars
Vales deep and forests dark
Betrayed by loyal hands, Her wrath stirred
Bound fast unto our fate
One path, one burden great
Yet ever do our aching souls point Heavensward
Ever rings out our song
Yes, ever do our aching souls march Heavensward
As they've done for so long
To their trespass
We are Witness
Here to pass this
Final sentence
No forgiveness
No deliverance
Only Justice
Only Vengeance
Wills unbending
Faith unending
Stone defending
Now our steel shall sing
Guide us, O mighty Fury
Guide us to victory!
Dys An Sohm In (Our slumber disturbed,)
Rohs An Kyn Ala na (All my brothers wake.)
Mah Morn Na-ah-ah-ahrr (The saviors must perish.)
Sahl Djahs Afah An (Vengeance will be ours.)
Eorzea!
Japanese translation
星々の目差しの下
深き谷と深き森
忠実なる僕に裏切られ、戦神は憤怒した
我らの運命に縛られ
ただひとつの道、背負う荷は重く
それでもなお、傷ついた我が魂は蒼天を仰ぎ
我が詩(うた)は、いつまでも鳴り響く
そう、傷ついた我が魂は蒼天を仰ぎ、歩み続ける
長きに渡り、そうしてきたように......
彼らの犯した罪に
我らが証人となりて
ここに下す
最後の審判を
許しもなく
救いもなく
あるのは正義と
復讐のみ
固き決意
終わりなき信仰
守護の石
今こそ、我らの鋼が鳴る
我らを導き給え、力強き戦神よ!
我らを導き給え、勝利へと!
ディス アン ソーム イン(我らの眠りは妨げられた)
ロース アン キン アラ ナ(我が血族が目覚める)
マー モーン ナール(救い主は死すべし)
サル ジャス アファー アン(復讐は我がものなり)
エオルゼア
