Upon This Path We Tread Lyrics

2. Upon This Path We Tread (5:33)
Out from the cave the hound does call
Broken fetters, the wolf runs free
Much have I known and more I have seen
The fate of the Gods prowess in war

From the east with shield held high
Hrym at the helm as waters rise
In giant-wrath does the serpent writhe
And the eagle gnawing corpses screams
“Naglfar Unleashed!”

Surt from the south with branches scourge
The sun of gods shine from his sword

Hlin must bear a second sorrow
For Odin fares to fight the wolf
As the giant slayer seeks out Surt
For there must fall the joy of Frigg

Out from the north a ship sets sail
Bearing with it those of Hel
After the wolf do wild men go
The trickster’s kin upon their course

After the wolf do wild men go
Warriors tread the path from Hel

(Adapted from the poetic Edda, stanzas 49-53)
