Therion – Helheim lyrics

Hel, the godess of death is also the godess of fulfilment.
Her name means both "hole" and "whole"
But also the process of birth and rebirth.
Hell was hurled down to the world of ice
And she governs not only death
And there she created nine dark worlds.
In the beginning of time
The bright god Balder and the power of the sun
Descend into her misty realm,
But in the future Balder will be reborn and rise
From the womb of Hel like the sun in the springtime.


- Den dimholjda -
Heldrasil, O Heldrasil

I nio varldar styr.
Den dimholjda gudinnan Hel
Pa Gjallarbron, I alven Gjoll
De doda soker Dig.

Allt for manga infor Dig fortvivla,
O stora gudinna I Hel,
Dit skote ar moder till tiden
Hos Dig tager doden sin del.

Till Gnipahalan gar var fard
Se nornorna spinna var trao,
Vart ode styra de
Likt Balder da vi do.

Vi till Helheim likt Hermod ska resa
Hos Doden vi finna vart guld,
Nar Balder en gang kommer ater
Fran Urtid, Verdandi och Skuld.

Nar Helgrinden ska oppna sig
Da stiger solen upp
Nu aterfodd ur vinterns djup
Tillsammans med hoder.

Nar Balder blev dodad med list.
Som en skugga fanns Loke hos Hoder
Och alla forsvann ner till Helheim
Med Misteltens magiska kvist.

Och guden stiger upp
Se Helgrinden som oppnar sig
Nu aterfodd ur vinterns djup

Den fordolda gudinnan I Helheim
Med solen som sitt svard.
Bedriver bed livet sitt spel.
Ditt skote ar moder till tiden
O stora gudinna I Hel!
