A Night-Time Bede (Song version)                   A Night-Time Bede MP3

Chorus:
Mommy, Mommy bede for me,
Ask the Gods to watch over me
As I sleep in your embrace,
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Odin, cast your runes on me,
Underneath the great Ash Tree,
Protected from all harm Ill be,
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Chorus

Freyja sings a song for me,
Underneath the great Ash Tree,
With cloak of feathers, warm Ill be,
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Chorus

Giant winds blow merrily,
Underneath the great Ash Tree,
They rock my crib so gentelly,
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Chorus

Ask for Hel to wait for me,
Underneath the great Ash Tree,
Till I am old, asleep Ill be,
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Chorus

As I wait for day to come,
Underneath the great Ash Tree,
The Nine Worlds sleep along with me
Underneath the great Ash Tree.

Chorus

A Night-Time Bede  (Poem Version)

Chorus:
Mommy, Mommy bede for me,
Ask them to watch over me
As I sleep in your embrace,
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Odin, cast your runes on me,
Underneath the mighty ash tree,
Protected from all harm, Ill be,
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Chorus

As Freyja sings a song for me,
Underneath the mighty ash tree,
With feathered cloak, warm Ill be,
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Chorus

Giant winds blow so softly,
Underneath the mighty ash tree,
They rock my crib, so genteelly,
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Chorus

Ask for Hel to wait for me,
Underneath the mighty ash tree,
Till I am old, asleep Ill be,
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Chorus

As I wait for day to come,
Underneath the mighty ash tree,
The nine worlds sleep, along with me
Underneath the mighty ash tree

Chorus
