The hussars strike them down

Knights of the black cross about to break

Their marshall is struck dead

Poles and Lithuians gain ground ahead

Then the warmaster came

In blood he was caked

Rallied his knights around him

Teutonic crosses adorn his aromor

He rides down the hussars with a charge

Prussian crossbows release bolts in a barrage

Polish horse men are pierced by the iron hail

Dead liter the field and the fight drags on into the night

They break and the Polish forces have been smitten

Winter snow swirls around the fallen

Polish and knight blood mix

The situation that cost so many lives

Has now been fixed
