Beloved Wanderer

Raven soar swiftly through ashen skies
As worlds converge before my eyes,
Raven soar swiftly through ashen skies
Bringing me to You,
Leading me to You.

Odin, my king, my hero, my love,
Guarding me, guiding me, from up above,
Dear One, High One, take my hand
And lead me to Your will,
Lead me to your will.

Father of Gods and Father of men,
Your work to save Middlegarth never will end.
Beloved Wanderer, show me the path,
And I will walk with You,
I will work with You.

Ancient One, mighty, You crafted the worlds,
From ash and from elm the first humans emerged.
Giver of life, press Your lips against mine,
And let me breathe Your breath,
I long to breathe Your breath.

For nine long nights you hung on the Tree,
You sacrificed Yourself for what You would be,
Master of runes, let me suffer for You,
And learn Your mysteries,
Learn Your mysteries.

You cast an eye into Mimir´s Well
To see the unseen from Asgard to Hel,
Wise one, Farseeing, open my eyes,
And let me see Your truth,
Let me see Your truth.

Gunnlod You held for three nights in Your arms,
To win back the holy Mead precious to Gods,
Honey-tongued Bolverkr, speak to me now,
Inspire me with Your worlds,
I hunger for Your words.

Through wild nights of winter You hunt with the dead,
As mortals unknowing sleep in their beds,
Rider of Sleipnir, lord of the wnds,
Let me ride with You,
Through stormy skies with You.

Chieftain of Asgard and victory´s lord,
Your spear is mightier than any sword,
Wielder of Gungnir, penetrate me,
My heart hungers for You,
I yearn to bleed for You.

Father of wolves and master of seidhr,
I am Yours for eternity, far beyond death,
Celestial husband, embrace Your bride,
And bring me ecstasy,
Let me share Your ecstasy.

Raven soar swiftly through ashen skies
As worlds converge before my eyes,
Raven soar swiftly through ashen skies
Bringing me to You,
Leading me to You.
