The Death Of Baldr Lyrics
In my dreams I see my fate
Life is taken from me
Thus there was an oath from all
Never to harm Baldr
But one was too young to take this oath...
Take this bow as I guide your aim,
Even the blind may honour their kin...
Thus was the bane of the beautiful God
There was much despair
That deed began the end of things..
"With such a fell time we are faced
One is to blame for what has become
Soon he will face a terrible vengeance
For all that he has done...
Grief overwhelms, the end of all things
Is now at hand as envy subsides
One must ride the road to Hel
If we are to see the fallen son again...
Odins son Hermod the Bold
Will ride as the wind
To the second son
Now prepared is a funeral pyre
To send forth all that was
Nine dark nights, the ride to Hel
Comes he to the hall at last
"O! Hel,I beg of thee,
By the tears of the Aesir
That you may let me brother ride
With me back to his home
By guile was he taken from here..."
"This I say, if all will weep
Then I shall let your brother leave".
Thus it was spoken that all things
Shed their tears in his name
But there was one that would not weep...
"Thokk will weep
dry tears at Baldr's funeral pyre
Alive or dead the old man's
son gave me no joy.
Let Hel hold what she has"
Deciever, no shape or hide
Can spare you from revenge
You tread your fatal and final path
No mercy will you be shown
In this cave your eivl is bound
Bound by your own son's
Guts you shall remain
Underneat the poison
Forever you will lie
But come will the day
When bonds will break...
