Svartsot – Nidvisen lyrics

[Music and lyrics - Frederiksen]

[The song of hatred.
This song is based on several early sources of the way to destroy an enemy by turning the nature spirits against them. These sources include a runic inscription from Bergen and Egil's Saga. The process involved raising a hazel staff topped with a horses decapitated head, with the mouth opened in a gruesome grimace. All this was performed whilst uttering the correct formulas, which were carved into the hazel rod. Not an honest way to attack an enemy. The lyric is weitten in alliteration (as were many skaldik verses), the only proper sort of ryme for this subject.]

Hey! Skampletten sжttes pе dig, nidding!
Hey! Skamskжndt, sе skal du dшmmes nidding!
Jeg rister bodruner, jeg rister blжrgeruner,
Jeg rejser nidstangen, jeg retter den mod dig.

Hasselkжppen hжves, hestens stygge hoved griner,
Koldt, fra kroppen kappet, gabet gnжgger nu I tavshed,
Шgets шde шjne uden spor af шmhed stirrer,
Over mшrke marker, stangen knejser stolt y stilhed.

Hey! Skampletten sжttes pе dig, nidding!
Hey! Skamskжndt, sе skal du dшmmes nidding!

Jeg sender dig argskab, jeg sender dig galskab,
Jeg sender dig pinsler, jeg rister rune tre.

Trolden, algen, tursen, trжnger pе I tussemшrket,
Vжtten aner varsler, farer vжrgelшst om I vanvid.
Rodlшs er hin rеdvilde, revet ud af dvalens glemsel,
Den vil fred ej finde, fшare du her fra landet flygter.

Hey! Skampletten sжttes pе dig, nidding!
Hey! Skamskжndt, sе skal du dшmmes nidding!

Jeg kvжder nifvisen, jeg kvжder nag-visen,
Jeg kvжder din modgang, mens stangen knejser stolt.

Dulgt' er dеden dyster, dшden din jeg spеare I mulmen,
Varligt vжlges ordet, gammel visdom deri vogtes,
Mшrke ord jeg mжler, rшver magt fra mand og mandsling,
Disse ord jeg rеder, disse ord jeg rister rette.

Hey! Skampletten sжttes pе dig, nidding!
Hey! Skamskжndt, sе skal du dшmmes nidding!

Jeg rister bodruner, jeg rister blжrgeruner,
Jeg rejser nidstangen, jeg retter den mod dig,
Jeg kvжder nifvisen, jeg kvжder nag-visen,
Jeg kvжder din modgang, mens stangen knejser stolt.
