Lo, There Do I See My Father          Lo, There Do I See... MP3

Lo, there do I see my father,
Lo, there do I see my mother,
Lo, there do I see my brothers, and
my sisters, and all of my friends!

Lo, they do call to me,
Lo, they do bid me take
My place among them now.

1. I go to dwell in Valhalla,
In Folkwang and Fensalir,
My new home is in Asgard,
And all my Gods are near.


2. I sit beside my Ancestors,
In Hel may I be found.
I travel through the Nine Worlds,
I watch you from the mound.


3. Wassail to you who came here
To say farewell to me!
The Gods may keep you well, and
WeŽll meet beyond the Tree.
