The long ships are awaiting me
I’m setting sail to fulfill my destiny: for the rising sun hath promised me
That the blood of foes shall anoint my sword!
I heed the call of Fatherland
Sung to the tone of battle horns!
By Odin’s spear I swear this day
I’ll make them fear the sound of my name!
“My Father’s Gods will welcome me
To Valhalla’s halls if I should fall…
And there I’ll feast as Einherjer
Until the dawn of dread is come…”
“Away, away! To Asgard fly
With Valkyries in the vanguard
Across the sky and over clouds
The furious host doth hunt tonight…”
