A Soldier´s Prayer
(long version)

I am going to war
leaving loved ones behind
I am leaving what is precious
but I´m not going alone.
The Gods are with me
in all the dark places.

Aesir, ease their hearts
when my people miss me
Aesir, strengthen mine
when time crawls at snail´s pace
Aesir, stand with me
when I am facing death
Aesir, look after my loved ones
as I would.
