1. Valhalla’s Gates
Through mist and storm, we set sail
Our longboats cutting through the pale
We fight and feast, we live and die
For glory and honor, we reach the sky
2. The Pillagers
With sharp swords and ruthless arms
We pillage and plunder, cause alarm
No village too small, no town too strong
We sing our victory song all day long
3. The Seer’s Vision
In dreams and visions, we see the future
Of battles won and treasures captured
The seer’s words, we heed with care
For he sees what lies beyond the air
4. A Viking’s Love
Beyond the battles and the sea
I found a love that sets me free
Her eyes like stars, her hair like gold
Her love for me will never grow old.
Passage to Valhalla
Oh, valiant warrior, fear not the end
For death is just another door
That leads you to a realm beyond
Where battles rage forevermore.
The Valkyries shall come to take
Your soul into the halls of the brave
Where mighty heroes all await
To bask in Odin’s glory and waive.
Your deeds in life shall be praised
In a feast fit for the gods to see
And tales of your bravery raised
In Valhalla for eternity.
So let your sword be your guide
As you journey towards your fate
For in Valhalla, you shall abide
And forevermore you shall be great.
A Viking’s Heart
In my veins run the blood of the North
Where fjords and forests sing
And the winds carry the battle call
Of my forefathers’ fearless wing.
My heart beats with the rhythm of the waves
That crash upon rocky shores
And the thunder of the stormy skies
That engulfs the world and roars.
I am a Viking, bold and proud
My spirit free and strong
With the power of the gods within
And the courage to right the wrong.
I pledge my allegiance to Odin
And walk the path of Odin’s might
With sword held high and shield before
My honor, my glory, my fight.
For I am a Viking, born of the North
And my name shall echo through time
A warrior’s legend, a hero’s tale
Unto Valhalla’s embrace sublime.
A lonely wanderer I am
A Viking without a home
Roaming the seas and lands
In search of my destiny to roam.
The wind whispers to me its secrets
And the stars guide my course at night
As I sail towards distant horizons
Guided by a shimmering light.
I have seen wonders beyond compare
And battled foes with fierce might
My stories sung from shore to shore
By bards who marvel at my sight.
But I long for a place to call my own
Where the fire burns bright and warm
Where friends and kin gather round
And the love of the hearth is born.
Until then, I will roam the world
And cherish each moment’s newness
For every step I take furthers my voyage
And every adventure an act of greatness.
The Saga of the Great Viking Warriors
Amidst the sea of mist and the morning glow,
The Viking ships sailed with a rhythmic flow,
With long boats and stout souls full of fire,
The great warriors set out to conquer and acquire.
The cold winds howl as they venture forth,
A mighty horde from the icy north,
Their goal, to pillage, plunder and explore,
To set foot on distant shores they’ve ne’er seen before.
The waves crash against the rocky cliffs,
As they dock the ships and unfurl the masts,
With swords and axes held high and proud,
The Vikings charge forth, eager and loud.
Their helmets and shields glint in the sun,
As the battle cry echoes, one by one,
With fierce eyes and hearts ablaze,
They charge forth, ready to engage.
The clash of metal rings out like thunder,
As the Vikings’ fierce spirit is fueled to plunder,
The enemy falls before their might,
As the Vikings revel in conquest and delight.
But as the night falls and the fires blaze,
The warriors pause to rest and praise,
Their boundless spirit and courage so true,
To the gods and to each other, they renew.
For among the Viking clans, brotherhood is king,
And honor and valor are what they cling,
To uphold the legacy of their forefathers gone,
To be remembered in song and story, ever on.
So as the ship sails back home,
The Vikings rejoice, no longer to roam,
Their battles won, their glory secured,
Their hearts and souls forever assured.
