Introduction by Wolf Helser

 

 

The Valkyrie                   Valkyrie MP3

 

Choosers of the Slain,
Maidens of Valhalla,
Wolf Riders all

Odin and Freya
Send them forth
Riding to Midgard
After great battles

Bringing back the Honorable
Gathering the Courageous
Bold and Fierce Warriors
Those chosen for the Gods' halls

The Ravens caw and the Wolves howl
For the Einherjar come home
Every Valkyrie with her chosen Hero
Rides across the flaming bridge

With armour and sword, they stand
Freyja, the Vana-Dis, approves
The Allfather accepts
To their halls each warrior goes

The Valkyries celebrate
The Horns of Mead are passed
To Honor! To Courage!
To Duty! To Truth!
Hail the Heroes All!

Wolf Helser
