[1st Stanza]
One united people, one heartbeat, one God, and one banner,
May this be the battle cry of our time, May we triumph with this.
Attack with glad minds and fresh courage,
The Iron Cross and laurel branch beckons every man.
The Iron Cross and laurel branch beckons every man.

[2nd Stanza]
Up, German people, to renewed defense, in the brightness of bloody victory
And if there are many more enemies, then God alone will help us!
With His strength the goal will be reached, we will prevail in the Cross,
It will become as a sword in courageous hands and as a flaming banner.
It will become as a sword in courageous hands and as a flaming banner.

[3rd Stanza]
In the sign of victory you stand as a protection of home and hearth,
The Fatherland needs every man and every German sword.
Up, German armies, faithful and combat-ready, towards new victories
One heartbeat, one united people goes through the world into history.
