92. All That I Have
Raise your head and your hands
one refrain on your lips; 'I give all that I have.'
All to the Gods, all to your land
all of your blood that you die while you stand
I give all that I have.
Des aran u ring, Luqui
I give all that I have to Luqui,
she of the sharp eyes and beak
May her children and kin bear my body aloft
o'er the battlefield's squalor and reek
Huat, huat! Give all that you have
the day we'll die, only she knows
Luqui will honor your sacrifice if
your flesh feeds the vultures and crows.
Des aran u ring, Hamun
I give all that I have to Hamun,
child of the moon and sun
His silver ship take me if I die in vain
His golden ship waits if I've won
Huat, huat! He'll gift you his grace
if your fight-need be true, just and right
and appeal to his parents to allow you a place
in the Court of the Day and the Night.
Des aran u ring, Ditru ne Diqua
I give all that I have to Ditru and Diqua
Bloodshed, battle-madness and bliss,
Ditru lend me courage to overcame pain,
and Diqua, bless me with your kiss
Huat, huat! In the heat of the fight
they'll remind you of what you fight for
For beauty and country and freedom and joy
We call upon weapons and war.
Des aran u ring, Micholata
I give all that I have to Micholata
Father of warriors all
I have chosen your path, I have guarded your door
I hear you and I answer your call
Huat, huat! We will measure our stride,
and wait til' the moment is here
When, with craft in our minds and a weapon in hand
we'll give our foes something to fear.
Des aran u ring, Endajar
I give all that I have to the land of my heart,
the place where my blood was shed
In the form of an oath that I shall never break
or Dyluma take me instead
Huat, huat! Keep your head up, strive on
for the next battle's never too far
for those brave of heart and beholden to gods
who stand by our side while in war.
