Lyrics:

1). Lifandi lif undir hamri

Ðað langa konungsriki
þar sem fleiri stjórna
Frá óveðri, snjóklæddum
fjallartoppum
sjáum við yfir land og þjóð

Við riðum á Miðgarðs brautum
þoka frá jörðinni fer i kringum
okkur
Að vestan getum við séð sjoinn, par
sem þeir fyrstu fóru i land
þar sem þeir fóru höfn áður en þeir
foru norður

Vindblásið land, tómar eyðimerkur
þeir djúpustu skógar og
svörtustu kjarr
fjörður og fjöll er okkar landamerki
i lifandi lifi undir hamri

Fædd i mynd af þeim premar
til lifandi lif undir hamri
horn eiga aftur að heyrast
i fjöllum og dölum

========================================
English translation: Living Life Beneath the Hammer

A long and narrow kingdom
Ruled by trinity
From stormy mountain tops covered with snow
We behold the kingdom of the Hammer

We ride along the paths of Midgard
Fog from the soil rises at our feets
To the west the shore can be seen,
where the first sat foot ashore
Where they raised sail towards north

Windswept landscape, desolated mountain plateaus
The Deepest woods and darkest scrubs
Fjords and mountains are our landmarks
in a life beneath the Hammer

2). Vetrarnott

Svarta kalda vetrar nótt
vektur af söngvi og dansi
Fra skýjum glitra þórs ljómandi
örvar
Mánin lýsir yfir hringnum

Niu ljós fyrir þá niu i hringnum
Hrigaðir af niu skyggum fyrir
þá niu sálinar
i miðjunni, borð af eldi, jorð,
vatni og golu
Við leitum, en við sjáum okkur sjálf

============================
English translation: A Winter’s Night

A dark, chilling winters night
Unsilently awoken by song and dance
From above rains the golden arrows of Thor
Moonbeams enlighten the ring

Nine torches for those nine in the circle
Surrounded by nine shadows for nine souls
In the middle, an altar of fire, soil, water and wind
Look, and behold yourself

3). Miogaros eldar

Lúðurinn lætur
Heimfarinn til okkur Guðs ættingar
miðgarðs eldar, og gamlitimins
dular fulle stund er ennþa

Bústaðarmenn fara eins og kuikindi
yfir hús og bæ
Mjöllnir sveiflast, þrumur og eldingar
Vikingars einkamerki úlfar
og krummar
Vakta yfir hásæti

============================
English translation: Fires of Midgard

The call of the Gjallarhorn
Return to the ring of our forefathers gods
The flames of Midgard’s fires and ancient mystisism still are

]sg}rdsreien rides with terror above the village
Mjolner is swung, thunder and lightening!
The landmarks of the Vikings
Wolves and ravens guards the throne

4). Heimdallr

Heimdallr heitir einn áss;
hann er kallaðr hviti áss;
hann er mikill ok heilagr;
tennr hans váru af gulli;
Hestr hans heitir Gulltopr
Hann býr þar er heitir
Himinbjörg við Bifröst
þarf hann minna svefn en fugl;
hann sér jafnt nótt sem dag hundrað
rasta frá sér;
hann heyrir ok þat er gras vex á
jörðu eao ull á sauðum,
ok allt þat er hærra lætr.
Hann hefir lúðr þann er
Gjallarhorn hetir,
ok heyrir blástr hans i alla heima.

===========================
English translation: Heimdall

Heimdall is the name of an Old Norse God;
He is called the Old White Norse God;
He is great and holy;
His teeth are made of gold;
His horse is named Goldtop.
He lives where it’s called the mountain in the sky besides
Bifrost.
He needs less sleep than a bird;
He sees night as clear as day
One thousand miles away from where he is;
He also hear the grass grow from the soil,
Or the wool on the sheep and everything that can be heard.
He possess the horn that is called the Gjallarhorn,
And they can hear him blowing the horn in all the homes.

5). Norvegr
