Havets Plage

Danish to English Translation:

The Scourge of the Sea

Music and lyrics: Frederiksen

Down by the coast’s barren lands, the warship lies to
The fjord’s headlands hide the ship with the black sail
The watchman stands in the prow and spies out to the sea’s edge
Waits for a lonesome cog, filled with southern gold

Out on the sea sails a ship, weighted by its load
Soundlessly and with lightning speed the warship sails forth
Whetted blades as bright as silver reflect the light of the sun
The sea is dyed red with blood
Peaceful sailors slaughtered for their gold
The scourge of the sea
