Vigil Dirge                    Vigil Dirge MP3  Vigil Dirge PDF

 On this day, on this day,
 We'll remember all,
 You will part and we will stay,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 When from here you are passed,
 We'll remember all,
 To the Tree you'll come at last,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 When from the Tree you are passed,
 We'll remember all,
 To the Well you'll come at last,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 When from the Well you have passed,
 We'll remember all,
 The Rainbow Bridge you'll see at last,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 When the Bridge you have passed,
 We'll remember all,
 To Asgard you will come at last,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 Heimdall will lead you in,
 We'll remember all,
 Welcome you as friend and kin,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 Frigga's house, shining bright,
 We'll remember all,
 Fire and warmth and candle-light
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 With Freya and Frey, Odin and Thor,
 We'll remember all,
 You will be for evermore,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 Aesir all, Vanir all,
 We'll remember all,
 You'll be home in every hall,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
 
 On this day, on this day,
 We'll remember all,
 You'll arrive and we will stay,
 And Gods receive thy soul.
