Echoes of Valhalla

Sounds the horns of ancient tune
Echoes through the halls
Of the Great Valhalla

Warriors at the great hall
gathered from battle grounds
among white-capped mountains

stand together in glory
shining swords and countenances
telling tales of valours

the Valkyries
in flurries of wings
flew again, leading them to Odin

the god in benevolent splendor
listening to tales of them
in the dirges of dying

‘among our brothers
In the arms of our fathers
with pride we gather’

‘we stand with our sisters
guarding our mothers
from rebels of heritage’

‘long shall the hall
of Valhalla
house the souls of warriors’

‘for stand us proud
alive through tales
of bards of yore’

‘stand us here
in the Halls of the Slain
memories sang in sweet refrain’

‘we are of the fallen
led here by Valkyries
to prepare for Ragnarok’

‘in the fields of Vígríðr;
clashes of swords
Man and immortals shall ring’

‘before then shall we
dine together
in the Hall of Valhalla’

For now the gate is closed
where the wolf hangs
and the eagle hovers on.
