I came up with this after listening to it only about 20 times, but I
had at least a little idea where it was coming from.

    'ej HumtaH 'ej DechtaH 'Iw
    'ej Doq SoDtaH ghoSpa' *Sqral bIQtIq
    'e' pa' jaj law' mo' jaj puS
    jaj qeylIS molar mIgh HoHchu'

According to the novelization of the episode, it means something like:

    And the blood was ankle deep,
    And the river Skral ran crimson red
    That day above all days when Kahless
    Slew the evil Molar dead!
