As long as we have water, where fish swim
As long as we have lands, where reindeer graze and wander
As long as we have grounds, where wild animals hide
Then we have consolation on this earth
When our homes have been destroyed and our lands devastated
-where will we live?
Our lands, our livlihood have dwindled
the lakes have risen
the rivers have run dry
the streams sing with sorrowful voises
the lands blacken, verdure wilts
the birds become silent and flee

All the good things we have received
do not touch ourhearts
What should have made our lives easier
has become worthless
Hard stone roads make our
movements painful
The peace in the people of the wilderness
cries in their hearts
In the rush of time
our blood is thinned
our unison shattered
water ceases to roar
