lyrics

The Great Ones

Words by Andonis Violaris
Music by Adam Violaris

Somewhere deep in time, hidden by mists
Shroud-like clouds part
Four Great Ones look down
Cruelly they smile on our woes

From great Asgard’s shores the Great Ones came
Cast their boreal light into our lives
Rite of flaming spear that sears the wind
Mighty Thor’s great hammer rends the air

Here where tall stones stand dark as the night
Offer prayers to Odin’s might
Feared Loki’s stare feeds our despair
Do they care

From Valhalla’s halls
The Great Ones come
Valkyries, then Twilight of the Gods
Goddess of the wolves that cry at night
Help us ease our sorrows and our fright

Back to Asgard’s shores
The Great Ones go
Leaving just their tales to help our lives
Sky-cloaked gods that stare
With fearsome eyes
Sated; laugh and leave us when they’re done

Don’t leave us, stay with us (repeat)
Don’t leave us, don’t leave us
Stay with us now!
(Repeat in Anglo-Saxon):
Abiddan giernes ge bidden ci egan
Abiddan giernes maestra nu

Back to Asgard’s shores
The Great Ones go
Leaving just their tales to help our lives
Sky-cloaked gods that stare
With fearsome eyes
Sated; laugh and leave us when they’re done

Don’t leave us, stay with us (repeat twice)
Don’t leave us now!
Don’t leave us, stay with us (repeat)
Don’t leave us, don’t leave us
Stay with us now!
