01. Vanadis

Mounted men, with axe and shield
on their ride through shallow field
See your sons oh Vanadis
Light my ways oh Manalihs...

Freyas Val
Woutans half

Oaken woods as dark as night
Home of those of heathen pride
Grant me strength oh Asynja
Be my guide oh Valfreya

Freyas Val
Vingolfs's pride

Herjan!!!
When the moon shines bright from the dark black sky
We raise our swords to thy hail
when the runes are thrown and the ravens fly
as a sign of our heathens prevail

While the morning breaks through Tenkterian wood
while the sun sets the shores aflame
There is one thing only which never dies
The honour of thy name
Foraan!!!

By my side my brothers fall
Now on their way to Freya's hall
We are yours oh Vanadis
Guide their ways oh Manalihs

Hjer Foraan
Tenkteriar

Herjan!!!
While twilight covers the blood red skies
While the sun sets the shores aflame
There is one thing only which never dies
The honour of thy name

When time draws near for the chosen ones
To fall on the blood stained fields
Then death will grant us a place amongst
Our fathers in the halls of bronzen shields

A burning flame as blue as ice
Now I can see it in your eyes
Be my fate oh Vanadis
Through the nights oh Manalihs...


02. ...As Long As Winds Will Blow...

... As long as winds will blow
My pride will be
And a star will shine
From far away...

...As long as winds will blow
My pride will be
And hate remains
Inside my heart

At night a star did shine upon
What once was build on my ancestors' land
When once I was young
Willing to learn
From the old and the wise

...As long as winds will blow
My pride will be
And hate remains
Inside my heart

Evening fell unto this land
That once was build by my ancestors' hand
When I was young
Willing to fight

...for as long as the winds will blow...


03. Aduatuza

Once on Tenkterian grounds
Hidden in the depths of woods
Near the shore of Rhine
Once was build the home of mine

... Landmark of resistance - Aduatuza
Tenkterian fortress - Aduatuza
... Hall of fallen heroes - Aduatuza
The place of glory - Aduatuza

Hall of bronzen shields
Shining bright through the trees
Build on shallow land
By our ancestors' hand

... Landmark of resistance - Aduatuza
Tenkterian fortress - Aduatuza
... Hall of fallen heroes - Aduatuza
The place of glory - Aduatuza


04. Donar's Oak

Branches as high as vigilant eye could see,
Magic runes, once scratched into this tree.
An old man sat down at this mighty oak,
Every morning, day by day...
And he closed his eyes
While a gasp blew through its leaves...
And he began to speak...

"Land er heilagt,
er ek liggja sé
ásum ok álfum nær
en í Þrúðheimi
skal Þór vera,
unz of rjúfask regin."

"Ýdalir heita
þar er Ullur hefir
sér of görva sali
Álfheim Frey
gáfu í árdaga
tívar at tannféi."

Roots as deep as the very depths of heart,
Source for those who know what's still to come...
Man of wisdom and knowledge great,
With hair as white as snow...
The young amongst them in a circle sat
And listened to his voice.
...While he began to speak...

"Land er heilagt,
er ek liggja sé
ásum ok álfum nær
en í Þrúðheimi
skal Þór vera,
unz of rjúfask regin."

"Ýdalir heita
þar er Ullur hefir
sér of görva sali
Álfheim Frey
gáfu í árdaga
tívar at tannféi."


05. ...The Ardent Awaited Land

Far away beyond the horizon,
Above the shadows of the horses' hoofs,
A maiden behind a golden shield
In a chariot rides across the sky.

Two ravens are above us,
A long forgotten tale,
How it is to reach the utter hail
And the eyes of a Valkyrjur caress your heart...

Once you will open your eyes
While a maiden is kneeing at your side,
And she will kiss you to awake
For you will stride the mighty rainbowbridge...

Two ravens are above you,
They will show you the final way
Across the river and over the mountain,
Into the ardent awaited land...


06. Homeward Shore

May Donar grant us guiding wind
Walfrigga bless those wooden boards
So we will see the morning sun arise
May the one eyed god lead us through raging storms
So we will reach our homeward shore

Allfather Wuotan grant us strenghts to beat those waves
God of rain and thunder guide us well
May Freyas star show us our way
So we will reach our homeward shore


07. Farewell

A cheek was beckoned
By a tear
A hand on a sword
And a whispering to hear

A word never spoken
A deed never done
Time now is near
Farewell my son...

Hail to thee
Great Valkyries
Lead my son to
Where he belongs...

Guide his way while
Crossing the rainbow
Bid him welcome there
Where he belongs...

"Riding on horseback
Winged like the ravens
Eyes of the one eyed god..."

"Sun now shines golden
Through the leaves of the old oaks
Up to the mountain
Now I ride..."

A glorious dream
That was never dreamt
A death never died
And a life never lived

The last words where spoken
While the rising of sun
Time now is near
Farewell my son...

[Ref.]

"Passing the frontier
Of Asgard and Midgard
Of heavens and grounds below"

"Allfather Wuotan's
Ravens my guidance
Leading me high above"

A cheek was beckoned
By a tear
A hand on a sword
And a whispering to hear

The last words where spoken
While the rising of sun
Time now is near
Farewell my son...

"From beyond the horizon
Glorious rising
The hall of the bronzen shield"

Portals now opened
Bidding me welcome
A shield maiden takes my hand..."
