Zij die voorzagen, hun doel na hun dagen
Bereiken de poorten van Alvaders hal
Schelden en speren, vlees, bier en mede
Zij vallen ten deel aan wie Wodan verkoor

Naar de hal der gevallenen streven de sterken
Wier dadenroem dood en vergetelheid tart
Eeervol geleefd en als helden gestorven
In lied'ren en heldendicht leven zij voort

De hoorn van Heimdal verkondigt de oorlog
De mensen en goden omarmen hun lot
Aan godenzijde te sterven in 't strijden
Laat het oude vergaan en het nieuwe ontstaat

De orde en aarde, zij zullen herrijzen
En Balder en Hodur verzoenen zich dan
Ontstaan na het noodlot van mensen en goden
Leven en Levensdrang keren dan weer

    To the hall of the fallen

    Those who have foreseen, their goal after their days
    reach the gates of alvader's hall
    shields and spears, meat, beer en mead
    they belong to those who have chosen odin

    To the hall of the fallen the strong aim
    whose famous acts cheat death and oblivion
    lived with honor and died like heroes
    in songs and heroes' poems they live on

    The horn of heimdall declares war
    the people and gods embrace their destiny
    to die by the gods' sides in battle
    let the old fade away and the new exist

    The order and earth, they will rise again
    and baldr and höðr then reconcile
    existing after the fate of man and gods
    life and life compulsion then return
