The siren tempts you.Vorwärts, vorwärts! Im Gesange Forward, Forward! In songRinge mit dem Schmerz der Welt, Wrestle with the pain of the world,Bis auf deine heisse Wange Until upon your burning cheekGoldner Strahl von oben fällt, Falls a golden beam from above.Bis der Kranz, der dichtbelaubte, Until the wreath, thick with leaves,Schattig deine Stirn umwebt, Weaves about and shadows your brow.Bis verklärend überm Haupte Until your head is transfiguredDir des Geistes Flamme schwebt. the flame of the spirit hovers aboveVorwärts drum durch Feindes Zinnen, Forward then through enemy lines,Vorwärts durch des Todes Pein, Forward through the pain of death,Wer den Himmel will gewinnen, Whoever would gain entry into heavenMuss ein rechter Kämpfer sein! Must be a true fighter! --poem by Geibel
