I am Hel MP3 (0,6 MB) sung by me 
Skarazula Marazula  Midi (external link)

I am Hel (A Song of Solace)
Tune: "Skarazula Marazula" (15th century, Giorgio Mainerio)

I am Hel the Dark One, and I will get you all.
Every man and woman must come into my hall,
the young ones and the old ones, and I will not let you go,
even if all the worlds should weep for you.

I am Hel the Beautiful, be greeted and come in.
Enjoy my hospitality together with your kin.
Your ancestors are sitting next to Balder in the light,
I bid you welcome - I am Hel the Bright.

We greet you, our lady and mistress of eternity,
you will unite us with the ones who went before;
with our friends and families we keep forever company,
and we shall sing till sorrow is no more.
