odins maiden lyrics – helheim

gautaty sent gondul and skogul to choose among the kings,
whom of yngves lineage should go to odin and be in valhalla
(from haakonarmaal)

ride my fair maidens, ride and bring them in
take to horse fair maidens
ride and bring my men in

through air and water to find fallen men
as north then west
across the sky on shieldmaidens horse
come my fair maidens and listen to my words
come my fair maidens
with mead and flesh on the table

my warriors on the horse my servants to the feast
children of the highest halls mine, odins maidens
