Vācu hronikās ir pieminēta leģenda par visu Baltu centrālo pagānisko svētvietu, kas atradusies Prūsijā - Rāmavā vai Romuvē, sauktā arī par Rīkojotu. Tur bijis milzīgs sens ozols, kura dobumā vai tam blakus atradās trīs galvenie dievu elki: Pērkons, Pīkols (Patols) un Potrimps. Šai svētnīcā dzīvoja priesteri - vaideloši un vaidelotes un arī pats virspriesteris Krīvu Krīvs, kas vadījis visas svarīgākās ceremonijas.
Kā dziesmas vadmotīvu mēs izmantojām senu prūšu/lietuviešu tautas dziesmu (paldies Jonas Trinkūnas un Kūlgrinda) un daži panti ir prūšu valodā!

Old German chronicles tells legend about the central pagan sacred place for all Baltic people, which was situated in Prussia at Romuve or Rickoyot. There stood a huge oak and besides that (or in his trunk) were seen idols of three main gods: Perkuns, Peckols (or Patollo) and Potrimpus. In this sanctuary also lived priests and priestesses (vaidelots) and the high priest Krive Krivaito himself. All most important pagan ceremonies and sacrifices were held there. More about it you will find in CD booklet.
In this song you can hear little bit of Prussian language as we used some Prussian/Lithuanian old folk song (thanks to Jonas Trinkūnas and Kūlgrinda) as main theme.

ROMUVE

The great thundergod Perkuns
Our great god

With your power, with your might
Unite us, strengthen us!

The first one is Perkuns, Thunderer of the Sky
Then there is Potrimpus, the one who gives blessings to the earth
The third one is old Peckols, the ruler of the Underworld
Into his realm the deceased find their way

The power of the Oak, the might of the Oak
Unite us, strengthen us!

Daily the everlasting fire are kept burning there by the priests
And priestesses come there in midsummer to make crowns from the oak leafs
And the one, who can talk with the gods and knows their will
The Krive Krivaito himself lives in that sacred grove of Romuve

From ancient times the century old oak grows there
Three idols of gods sit by that oak, mute and noble
One has a burning crown
Another is a strong young lad
The third has a long beard
And a shroud covers his head

The great thundergod Perkuns
Our great god

The first one is Perkuns, Thunderer of the Sky
Then there is Potrimpus, the one who gives blessings to the earth
The third one is old Peckols, the ruler of the Underworld
Into his realm the deceased find their way...
