Ride for all you're worth
Faster then lightning,
To the dark realms of the world
Through valleys of darkness
On our way to Nifelheim
To the halls of Hel
Where my brother waits
Wailing voices on the wind
Urging me to turn
Distant tortured screams
Cold blue fires burn
I hear the sound of river Gjoll
Running cold and deep
It's a golden bridge shines in the dark
The bridge that Modgud keeps
Over the bridge, on through the night
Hel is getting near
There are the gates, towering high
Afflicting me with fear
In her hall, at the honor seat
My brother sits in pain
Pale and tortured Balder greats
Bound by invisible frozen chains
I have come, to bring him back with me
The whole world mourns his death!
Please set Balder free
Give him back his breath!
If it's true, what you say to me
That the whole world mourns his death.
If the whole world will weep I'll give him back his breath!
