Kom død, kjære død;
gi meg løsning på alle gåter;
gi meg nøkkel og tryllestav,
knyt opp verdens knuter.

Hvorfor i døden, min venn, og der alene?
Hvorfor i glemselens elv du stuper?
Hvorfor i mørket, min venn, og der alene,
søker du lysets vennlige varme?

La meg åpne det lukkede rom,
la meg riste de skjulte runer,
la meg kaste mitt spyd,
midt i trollets kalde hjerte.

Hvorfor i døden, min venn, og der alene?
Hvorfor i glemselens elv du stuper?
Hvorfor i mørket, min venn, og der alene,
søker du lysets vennlige varme?

Døden var her først.
Glemselen seirer til slutt.
Mørket fødte lyset.
Hva mer vil du vite?

Død, kjære død! Død, min død!
Glemselen har tatt meg.
Mørket har senket seg for alltid.
Hva mer kan jeg vite?
Kom død, kjære død;
gi meg løsning på alle gåter;
gi meg nøkkel og tryllestav,
lås opp verdens låste luker.

Døden var her først.
Glemselen seirer til slutt.
Mørket fødte lyset.
Hva mer vil du vite?

Død, kjære død! Død, min død!
Glemselen har tatt meg.
Mørket har senket seg for alltid.
Hva mer kan jeg vite?

    Valen:

    Come death, dear death;
    give me the answer to all riddles,
    give me key and wand,
    untie the knots of the world.

    Why in death, my friend, and only in death?
    Why do you dive into the river of forgetfulness?
    Why in darkness, my friend, and only in darkness,
    do you seek the friendly warmth of the light?

    Let me open the closed room,
    let me carve the hidden runes,
    let me throw my spear,
    into the malevolent chanter's cold heart.

    Why in death, my friend, and only in death?
    Why do you dive into the river of forgetfulness?
    Why in darkness, my friend, and only in darkness,
    do you seek the friendly warmth of the light?

    Death was here first.
    Forgetfulness will always win.
    Darkness gave birth to light.
    What else do you want to know?

    Death, dear death! Death, my death!
    Forgetfulness has taken me.
    Darkness surrounds me forever.
    What else can I know?
    Come death, dear death;
    give me the answer to all riddles,
    give me key and wand,
    unlock the world's locked doors.

    Death was here first.
    Forgetfulness will always win.
    Darkness gave birth to light.
    What else do you want to know?

    Death, dear death! Death, my death!
    Forgetfulness has taken me.
    Darkness surrounds me forever.
    What else can I know?
