All Worthy
The first stanza is the "Burden", or chorus.

Wassail Woden, All Father wise
Drinker from Mimirís Well
Battle Slain and Wild Hunt Lord
Inspirer of the Skald

Oíer the Nine Worlds, Wide-faring One
Seeking for Lore, Gaining in Wit
Show us the way, to be as You
Learning ever, building Orlay

-Burden-

Hung from the Tree, windy nights nine
Hallowed to Self, wounded by Spear
Cared by none, Dark Vision came
Fell to the Runes, rose up again

-Burden-

Kvasir the Wise, did God Tribes make
And the Dwarves two did murder him
Blood into Mead, prize to be gained
Odin won out, despite ordeal

-Burden-

Worthy the Words, sent to the Skalds
Poem and Song, Lore for the Folk
Weapons you give, to Warriors
Looking for Men, Warband to be

-Burden-

Worthy War Dead, half to Valhall
Fight in the day, feast in the night
Odin looks on, Gungnir in hand
Einheriar for Ragnarok

-Burden-

Black Raven twins of Thought and Mind
They perch above His High Seat old
Bringing the news of Worlds and Wights
Har sits and thinks, Deemings and Dooms

-Burden-

Grey are the wolves, sit at Grimís knee
Guarding the way to ∆sir chief
Wild Spirit, Strength of the Clan
Inside the Hall, upon the Land

-Burden-

Oer the Nine Worlds, Wide-faring One
Seeking for Lore, Gaining in Wit
Show us the way, to be as You
Learning ever, building Orlay

-Burden-

-Burden-
