In Yggdrasil those who believe
Find peaceful relaxation 
Her holy lakes, her waterfalls
Are aids to contemplation 
Where warriors whose heaving chests 
Were rendered still by wasted breath
Now sit beneath the lady’s breast
And understand there is no death

In Yggdrasil the goddess rules
With one eye blue, one red
Who loves the wise men and the fools
And gathers all the dead

In Yggdrasil, the waters wait
And in their calmness drown all hate
