    Lyrics

    In primordial times, when Ginnungagap empty stared
    Before Ymers death, before our triumphant dominion
    There was nothing
    No sea, no waves
    No earth, no heaven

    A frostcovered stone created
    Bure, father of Bur, Bestlas husband

    Bestla, daughter of Boltorn
    And mother of three
    Oden, Vile and Ve

    Ymer's assassins, Svears creators

    [Chorus:]
    Oden - spirit and life you gave
    Vile - intellect was your gift
    Ve - completed the heathen warrior
    And Sweoland sets sail to plunder

    With will as strong as the heart of Hrungner
    They sat the world ablaze
    Usurpers of Ethelreds british isles
    Conquerors of western Frankia
    And crushers of Irish strongholds

    The flesh of a giant bears the mark of their tribe
    And his blood carried them forth to glory

    "Never before has such terror appeared
    as we now have suffered from a pagan race"

    "Nor was it thought possible
    that such an inroad from the sea could be made"

    [Repeat chorus]

    "Shrines were desecrated
    Ornaments were plundered
    The bodies of saints were trampled
    The blood of priests was spilled"
