When Gjallhorn Will Sound Lyrics


Falkenbach - When Gjallhorn Will Sound Lyrics


Morning arose that day long time gone
Two ravens above him showed the way
He was guided by Óðinn, led by the one
Who shelters the fallen every day by day
Once blood was shed of countless of man
In the name of the cross and christian pray
For hundred of years his heart laid in chains
But hate was growing stronger every day by day

Ruler of Ásgarðr, father of Þórr
Send me your powers divine
Grant me your wisdom, strengthen my soul
So revenge of your blood shall be mine
Allfather Óðinn, I entreat you with awe
To ride with me side by side
So avenged shall all be
Who had died in the past
By the power of heathenish pride
Master of thunder, lightning and rain
Soon your hammer and cross shall collide
Protector of Midgaard's daughters and sons
In your name christian reign I will fight
When the hammer will crush, and oppressors will fall
My sword will be raised to Thy hail!
Then the fires shall burn in the name of the gods
As the sign of the heathen prevail!

Far in the past he saw what has been
His fathers' traditions handed down
But he still kept in heart the will to prevail
As his hate was growing stronger
Every day by day
Deep in his heart a shadow had grown
Which covered his mind with shades so grey
But still every morning encouraged his hope
When he sat by the old oak
Every day by day

Strong is my heart, and strong is my will
Soon I will break our chain
Then the swords shall be raised
And our flag held up high
The banner of heathen domain
Long I've awaited the day of revenge
The heathenish reign to return
Now my swordblade is forged
And my soul will prepared
By my hands christian crosses shall burn

Evening fell that day long time gone
The ravens above still showed the way
They were guided by Óðinn, led by the one
Who shelters the fallen every day by day
Blood to be shed of countless of men
In the name of revenge and heathenpride
No more withdraw will be on heathenish ground
No more mercy will be
When Gjallarhorn will sound
