Introduction by Wolf Helser

Ásgarðr                   Ásgarðr MP3

Flying at sky-jewels Rise
Swans of Blood
Watching the World

Seeking Thoughts of mind’s worth
Searching Memory’s of the Folk
Daily they take wing
Contemplative is the Lord of Gallows

Courage, Truth, Honour, Fidelity
Discipline, Hospitality, Self Reliance
Industriousness, Perseverance

Beneath the Hall of Shields and Spears
The Hanged God sits upon the High Seat
Shadows of War bring News
Warriors die to sit at Long tables

The One Eyed God commands
The Choosers of the Slain go forth
On great Black Wolves do they ride
The Honorable Fallen they seek

Unseen by the Living
They Travel across the foreign desert lands
No longer do they die by the sword
But by guns and bombs

Do not worry Warrior
Your Honor is great
Over the Bridge of Fire you will travel
Returning Home, To the Halls of the Gods

Queen of the Valkyrie chooses her fallen
Across Fólkvangr do they travel
Sessrúmnir they seek

For others the Great Hall of the All-Father
Opens its many Gates
Warriors raise their Horn’s to the Newly Fallen
Bragi recites tales of Greatness
“Ready yourselves Warriors” says the Old Man
Ragnarok Comes!
