Strive for that Hallowed Place
Tune: "The Promised Land", info see below
Strive for that Hallowed Place MP3 (1,3 MB)
Midi      Sheet music 
Sheet music with harmonies


On Heimdall's rainbow bridge I stand
and cast a wishful eye
on Asgard's great and lofty halls,
where my desires lie.

(Chorus)
I strive for that hallowed place,
I strive for that hallowed place,
With gods and goddesses to feast all night,
I strive for that hallowed place.

There generous fruits that never fail
On trees immortal grow.
There rocks and hills and brooks and vales
With mead and honey flow.

(Chorus)
I strive for that hallowed place,
I strive for that hallowed place,
With gods and goddesses to feast all night,
I strive for that hallowed place.

Soon will the gods my soul prepare
for joys up in the sky,
Where never-ceasing pleasures roll
And kinship never dies.

(Chorus)
I strive for that hallowed place,
I strive for that hallowed place,
With gods and goddesses to feast all night,
I strive for that hallowed place.
