Come, All Ye Heathens                  Come, All Ye Heathens MP3 ( MB, upcoming)
                                                                  Midi                 Guitar Tabs
Come, all ye heathens,
and gather around!
Come from all Midgard
with joyful sound!
Gladness bringing,
bells are ringing,
Men and women
Yuletide-singing:
Hail to the Gods!

Come round the fire
that merrily burns!
Come watch the sunrise
as another year turns!
Solstice night
bears a new light,
winter´s might
is put to flight:
Let us rejoice!

Come round the Yule-Tree
and share our meal!
May the Gods bring you
fair blessings and weal!
Bounty receiving,
gifts we are giving,
Aesir and Vanir
feast with us here:
Praise to the Gods!
