"Ahti" as written by Sami Tapio Hinkka, Sami Tapio Hinkka, Markus Aleksi Toivonen, Meiju Paulina Enho, Markus Aleksi Toivonen, Petri Lindroos and Janne Olavi Parviainen....
At the time of sundown
Nature bathes in colors
In silence it waits
For the approaching force
In the halls of Ainola
The true king of dark waters
Lurks with his mistress

Under the waves of a blue lake
Dwells the mighty Ahti!
Sailors praise the glorious name
The ruler of tides; Ahti!

At the shores of a northern land
Pray mortal men
Destruction for the arrogant fools
A reward for humble souls
The great lurker of the seas
Is pleased of the sacrifice
The waters are calm
Today no storm shall rise!

Foreign ship filled with infidels
They didn't listen to the northern men
From a dead calm storm will rise
And they'll face the wrath of the sea
Take care that your heir
Don't turn out too proud
Or your bloodline will drown into a vast ocean

    General CommentYou're explaination seems right. Thanks :)

    "In Finnish mythology, Ahti or Ahto is one of the heroic figures Elias Lönnrot compiled in the character of Lemminkäinen. Ahti is described as a fierce warrior who vows to live in peace after gaining Kyllikki as his wife, but breaks the oath and falls in a combat.

    Sometimes the name of Ahti is used of a god of the sea and of fishing, portrayed as a man with a beard of moss.[citation needed] He is the consort of Vellamo, and they dwell in the undersea palace of Ahtola.[citation needed] He probably possesses some fragments of Sampo, which was broken and then lost at sea after a battle.[citation needed] Also Vetehinen and Iku-Turso live underwater with Ahti."
