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

Chorus:
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.

Chorus

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

Chorus

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

Chorus
