Woden's Gift

Listen my friends as I hail the high one
All hold up a horn to the god
Who wanders the worlds as a grim-faced guiser
And meets in Mitgard with men

Strife he stirs in the hearts of his heroes
Fear he brings to his friends
Gungnir he uses to choose his children
Ravens feast on their pain

But dasher of dreams is healer of hope
When day dawns again
And warriors wake bloodied from battle
gifted with Woden's wisdom
