Burden (=chorus):
With Healing Hands and Healing Heart
Eira brings Life to Life
By easing pain and mending flesh
Give thanks to the Good One

In binding wounds and easing hurt
In soothing pain and staunching blood
In cooling brow and setting bone
The Healing One, is ever there

An infant coughs, young mother cries
An old one aches, in winter's cold
The Healing One does see them all
Sends Her power, and gifts them health

- Burden - 

By Mengloth's knee, Eira does sit
Handmaiden to, proud Svipdag's bride
A refuge high, by Lyfja hight
A healing place upon the mount

Gentle green slopes, amid warm springs
On mountain home, safe place to rest
Healing will come or final walk
Put us at ease, calm fear and pain

- Burden -

An Asynia, well regarded
Her blessing sought, for Leechcraft wise
By those who would, follow Her lead
In Healing Art, for good of Folk

A Valkyrie, She has been called
Coming to those, slain on the Field
Brought to Freya, or Odin's Hall
Final Passage, from gentle hand

- Burden -

Final Comfort, Final Ease
An end to Life, is natural
Eira's smile, a Beacon Bright
Sets our feet on, our Helroad walk

In binding wounds and easing hurt
In soothing pain and staunching blood
In cooling brow and setting bone
Is honor to the Healing One
