Stetig wie der Trommelklang [Steady as the beating drum]

Stetig wie der Trommelklang,
stimmt die Zedernflöte ein.
Jahr für Jahr nimmt seinen Gang,
bringt uns Korn und Früchte heim.
 
An den Flüssen süß und rein,
wo den großen Stör man fängt.
Mais und Bohnen hier gedeihen,
all das Muttererde schenkt.
 
Großer Geist hilf unserem Glück,
alte Sitten last bestehen.
Lasst das große Feuer glühen,
lasst uns immer aufrecht gehen.
 
Jahr für Jahr die Zeit im Gang,
stetig wie der Trommelklang.
Getreide wächst und reift heran,
stetig wie der Trommelklang

Steady as the sound of drums

Steady as the sound of drums
The cedar flute sounds.
Year after year it takes its course,
Brings us home grain and fruits.
 
By the river, sweet and pure,
Where the great sturgeon is caught.
Corn and beans thrive here,
Mother Earth gives everything.
 
Great spirit, help our luck
Let old customs exist.
Let the great fire glow,
Let us always walk upright
 
Year after year the time passes,
Steady as the sound of drums.
Cereals grow and mature,
Steady as the sound of drums
