Valkyries Came To The Battle That Day

Valkyries coming, dressed in feather coats
Swords, shields and spears penetrate the bronze air
Swan-maidens, messengers of the God Odhinn
Searching for brave men in the battle that day.

The Raven banner ripples under the sky
The battle we win cause the Raven´s flapping its wings
Its beak wide open, and restless its feet -
Valkyries came to the battle that day.

"We cross the sky, tear the air with war-cries
And choose the bravest men of all." -
Daughters of the mighty God, choose my soul as I fall
Travel me through the battle and take me to the mighty hall.

Hear the song of the Goddesses Norse
One bright sword through my body hurts like thorn
Lead my soul to the hall of the slain -
Valkyries came to the battle that day.

See how bright is the flickering light
Through the sky, see the Valkyries riding with pride
No more I can hear the horn -
Carry my soul to the mighty Hall.
