 FWIW, the last words of Wainamoinen (Väinämöinen; in Estonian Vanemuine: muni

the original Siberian(?) shamanic religion of Finns, after Christ replaced Him, 
in about 1100 CE:

Recognized his waning powers,
Empty-handed, heavy-hearted,
Sang his farewell song to Northland,
To the people of Wainola;

Westward, westward, sailed the hero
O'er the blue-back of the waters,
Singing as he left Wainola,
This his plaintive song and echo:
"Suns may rise and set in Suomi,

 

 Suomi = Finland; dialectal: suami, pronounced almost exactly like swami 
(svaamii), LOL!
 Sampo: no-one prolly knows for sure what it exactly was! Some kind of magic
 tool??
