Danheim - Vikinger

Old Norse/Norrønt, Danish
A A

Vikinger

Vi er Vikinger
I nord vi sejler fra
Kyst til fremmed land
Vi kæmper alle mand
Æsir giv os mod
Til valhal efter død
I den mørke muld
Vi skåler Frydefuldt
 
Þat mælti mín móðir,
At mér skyldi kaupa
Fley ok fagrar árar,
Fara á brott með víkingum
(Vi er Vikinger)
Standa upp í stafni,
Stýra dýrum knerri,
halda svá til hafnar
Höggva mann ok annan,
Höggva mann ok annan
 
Þél höggr stórt fyr stáli
Stafnkvígs á veg jafnan
Út með éla meitli
Andærr jötunn vandar,
En svalbúinn selju
 
Standa upp í stafni,
Stýra dýrum knerri,
halda svá til hafnar
Höggva mann ok annan,
Höggva mann ok annan
 
Æsir giv os mod
Til valhal efter død
I den mørke muld
Vi skåler Frydefuldt
 
  • en svalbúinn selju:

    According to the lyrics from the band's website, after this the following is sung: "sverfr eirar vanr þeiri Gestils ölpt með gustum gandr of stál fyr brandi." instead of what is written here.

Thanks!

We don't have a category for Old Icelandic in specific, but for Old Norse, of which Old Icelandic is a dialect.
I've re-categorized the song accordingly.
Also, it doesn't seem necessary to specify the languages in the lyrics field, so I've removed that from there.
