My Gods, Your Love                  My Gods, Your Love MP3
                                                              My Gods, Your Love  Guitar Tabs
My Gods, your love
Is our Thing and Homestead,
Our Faith and Family,
Our Hearth and Home.

1. Who smiles in the leaves?
Who whispers to the mound?
Who is the radiance
On ripening fields of corn?

Frey, your love
Is warm like sun and summer,
Rich as the seasons,
Full of peace and joy.

2. Who brings abandon
In sorrow and in pleasure,
Fierce golden flame
Enthralling our heart?

Freya, your love is
A fire that consumes us,
Wildness that frees
To passion´s highest peak.

3. Who blesses with rain?
Who wards the realm of men?
Who laughs in the thunder,
Who stands always true?

Thor, your love
Is strong as earth and fire,
Mighty as stormwind,
Steadfast as a stone.

4. Who is the hearth
Which gathers all around?
Who spins in silence
And smiles her knowing smile?

Frigga, your love
Is comfort, warmth and kindness;
Light in the longhouse
Leading to our home.

My Gods, your love
Is our Thing and Homestead,
Our Faith and Family,
Our Hearth and Home.
