Helheim Lyrics

Artist: Therion
Album: Secret of the Runes

Hel, the godess of death is also the godess of fulfilment. Her name means both "hole" and "whole" and she governs not only death but also the process of birth and rebirth. Hell was hurled down to the world of ice in the beginning of time and there she created nine dark worlds. The bright god Balder and the power of the sun descend into her misty realm, bu in the future Balder will be reborn and rise from the womb of Hel like the sun in the springtime.

HELHEIM
- Den dimholjda -

Heldrasil, O Heldrasil

Den dimholjda gudinnan Hel
i nio varldar styr.
Pa Gjallarbron, i alven Gjoll
de doda soker Dig.

Allt for manga infor Dig fortvivla,
O stora gudinna i Hel,
Dit skote ar moder till tiden
hos Dig tager doden sin del.

Se nornorna spinna var trao,
vart ode styra de
Till Gnipahalan gar var fard
likt Balder da vi do.

Vi till Helheim likt Hermod ska resa
hos Doden vi finna vart guld,
nar Balder en gang kommer ater
fran Urtid, Verdandi och Skuld.

Nar Helgrinden ska oppna sig
da stiger solen upp
nu aterfodd ur vinterns djup
tillsammans med hoder.

Som en skugga fanns Loke hos Hoder
nar Balder blev dodad med list.
och alla forsvann ner till Helheim
med Misteltens magiska kvist.

Se Helgrinden som oppnar sig
och guden stiger upp
nu aterfodd ur vinterns djup
med solen som sitt svard.

Den fordolda gudinnan i Helheim
bedriver bed livet sitt spel.
Ditt skote ar moder till tiden
O stora gudinna i Hel!

This song I believe is about the land of the dead in Norse mythology and of the goddess that oversees it "Hel" with which the place is named after. Many people would probably confuse it with hell but (I may be mistaken) hell is actually Muspelheim (or land of the flames)
