These Gods are Your Gods         MP3         Guitar Tabs        Sheet Music
Adaptation of "This Land Is Your Land"


These Gods are your Gods, these Gods are my Gods,
From the heights of Asgard to the depth of Helheim,
From the heart of Midgard to wondrous Vanaheim,
These Gods are there for you and me.

As I went walking in Sunna´s splendor,
I saw above me good Heimdall´s rainbow,
I saw below me Sif´s golden valley,
These Gods are there for you and me.


I went to pubmoots, I went to gatherings,
I found some old friends, I made some new ones,
While all around me voices were sounding:
These Gods are there for you and me.


As I was standing within the circle
To hail the old Gods with blot and sumbel,
The horn was passing and then I realized:
This mead was made for you and me.
