The heavy boat lay quietly at the bank
With weapons and fur drapes
Waves gently lifted
and waves gently sunk
Very closely yet until far into the distance
on every tree and every stone
there the crows and crows in multitudes sat
And greeted him with cawing and screams

The wolves trotted along the bank
and howled the entire night
So they met everyone
So they thought his
They thought the blood and the battle
the power and the honor, the courage
they thought its eyes fully fire
and fully the youthful glow

It heard the lies of the cross probably
yet it never believed them.
Faithful, it stood only to Wotan alone
before it, it only sank its head
for it was a servant of the aces
to fight and for it ready
he carried Donar´s hammer with dignity and pride
like its ancestors long time ago

The last battle was struck for it
one bedded it on its boat
the dispute ax yet firmly in the hands
And nobly yet into death.
The wolves crunched the cables
in flames, it drove on the sea
and the last heir of the crow
Walhalla´s hero army entered

For it was a servant of the aces
to fight and for it ready
it carried fully would become Donar´s hammer and pride
how already its ancestors long time ago
