War, the very first war of our world,
When the treacherous witch was killed
Three times burned and three times born,
By searing flames was Gullveig torn.

Death, Oden hurled his spear off with great force
Deep into the great vana-fyrd
Battle horns gave up their sound
And Asgard walls razed to the ground.

The Vanir felt deceived
H'nir was a fool
Without M'mir at his side
H'nir could not rule
In a fit of violent rage
M'mir's blood was she'd
And to Odin's court they sent M'mir's severed head

Truce, so a brittle and frail peace was forged
And to ensure that the peace remained.
Njordr and Frej to Asgard came
And H'n' and Mim' to Vanaheim

Death, see the furious gods wanting blood,
Oden knew that a raging war
Would not bring them any gain
Just leave a black and bitter stain.

Odin tog huvudet och
Smorde det med 'rter
Som hindrar det
Fr'n att ruttna
Han kvad sedan
Trolls'nger 'ver det
S' att Mimer 'ter
Kunde tala till honom

The Vanir felt deceived
H'nir was a fool
Without M'mir at his side
H'nir could not rule
In a fit of violent rage
M'mir's blood was she'd
And to Oden's court they sent M'mir's severed head

The Vanir felt deceived
H'nir was a fool
Without M'mir at his side
H'nir could not rule
In a fit of violent rage
M'mir's blood was she'd
And to Oden's court they sent M'mir's severed head
