Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{Chijou no Tsuki} to utawareta shijin  Luna Ballade
Kakoku na tabi no hate ni ganbyou wo wazurai  hikari wo ushinatte nao utai tsuzuke
Sono uta wo tooshite kiku mono no kokoro no yami ni  kibou no hikari wo tomoshi tsuzuketa josei

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Luna Ballad, the poet extolled as "the moon come to Earth"
At the end of her harsh journey, she was afflicted with a disease of the eyes and lost her light, but even so, she continues to sing
Her song always lit a light of hope in the darkness of the hearts of those who heard it

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
{Shijou no Bara} to utawareta joou  Rose Guine Avalon
Boukun to shite shirareta joou no mei de ari  oui keishouken daiichi'i no hime de atta

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The queen extolled as the "supreme rose," Rose Guine Avalon
As the niece of the queen known as a tyrant, she was the crown princess, first in line for the throne
She liberated the people who had suffered under the despotic reign of the previous queen

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"{Bara} ni yotte, {Uta} ga dan'atsu sareru you na jidai wa,
mou owari ni shimashou...yowai jibun ni makenai tame ni mo,

Mou donna arashi ga otozure you to mo, watashi wa utai tsuzukerareru..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Let's put an end to the era of having your song (freedom of thought and speech)
suppressed by the rose (those in power)... So that I won't be defeated by my weakness,
I've taken on the name of the one I love... ah... Endymio...
Whatever storms may come, I will continue to sing..."

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"Minna wa mou ichido hokori wo torimodoshite hoshii!
Sokoku wo aisuru kokoro wo, kono kuni wa minna ga aishita kokyou ni modoreru darou ka?
Fuyubara wa kare, ima osoi haru ga otozureta...
Watashi wa koko ni chikau! Bridget ni shukufuku sareru bara ni naru to!"

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
"I want everyone to take back their pride, their hearts that love their motherland!
Can I make this country the home that everyone loved once again?
The winter rose has wilted, and now a late spring has arrived...
I swear it here! I shall become a rose blessed by Brigid, goddess of light!" [1]

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Year 627 of the Britannian calendar
Childebert the Sixth, then king of Flanders,
Changed his country's name to the Holy Flemish Empire and began expanding his territory
Calling himself St. Childebert the Sixth, he crowned himself as the first emperor
And began an assault on Britannia, calling it a holy war...

Knights of the Rose

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
That is... one verse of Luna Ballad's song of people who dragged behind them a long era of troubles
Now uniting into one under a new rose...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Wreathed in proud flames, they took up swords to defend our motherland
Let us praise our countrymen who bear on their chests the queen's noble rose,
Our Knights of the Rose

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Aa...Bridget no shukufuku ga aran koto wo...
Inori no uta ni miokurare  yuuki na Britannia no musuko-tachi wa senjou e to mukatta...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ah... the blessings of Brigid, goddess of light, be upon them...
Seen off by a song of prayer, the sons of Britannia headed toward the battlefield...

[1] Brigid is a Celtic pre-Christian goddess who is associated with dawn and fire and is a particular patron of poets. In this alternate history, she seems to have become Britannia's primary goddess.
