To Tyr

Living Irminsul, Lord Tyr--
Bright the blade in left hand bearing,
Wolf´s bait the right, a hidden witness
To faith forsworn for Asgard´s frith.
When bitter words bring men to battle,
Truth denied, and trust betrayed,
Reputation replaces honor.
Defender, Asgard´s doom delaying,
Your honor in that hour was offered.
Can you teach us, Tyr, to tell
When to stand fast against the fearful
And when to sacrifice our souls?
