Ginnungagap Lyrics

In the beginning there was a void, a big gap of darkness, filled with the primal forces of creation. The heat of Muspel and the ice of Nifel made the essence of life come forth from the void. The first living being, The Giant Ymer, was born out of darkness and he is the ancestor of the creatures of the universe. The world was formed from his slaughtered body. Ginnungagap is the black hole from which everything came out and into which everything will return in the end.

Fall deep into Void
In the black hole of Nothing

Hail, Flow of Vergelmar
Hail, Flow of Vergelmar
Hail, Flow of Vergelmar
Hail, Old Void!

Hail, Flow of Vergelmar
Heat of creation
Hail, Flow of Vergelmar
Hail, Old Void!

Spark in the Nothingness
Heat of creation
Make the ice start to melt
Life wake up in the void.

Ymer is born, fire and ice
Chaos will form, Megin will rise

Fader Ymer drack frn urkon
En strm av mjlk som gav oss liv.

ppna gapet i rymdens mitt
Flda av blod frn Ymers kropt
Vrldar skapas utav hans ktt
Nio (till) antal p Yggdrasil.

Ymers gap - Ymers runa
Ymers ond - Ymers urlag

English:


Father Ymer drank from the primal cow
A stream of milk which gave life to us all.

A void has opened in the middle of space
A rush of blood from Ymers body
New worlds take shape throughout his flesh
All the nine of them upon Yggdrasil.

Ymers mouth Ymers rune
Ymers suffering Ymers primal law
