Stigen leder högre upp
Mot svarta bergens snovita topp
En ädel syn ny väntas kan
Styrka uråldrig och ära sann

Jag döper mitt sinne
I sanningens bäck
Ur berget den rinna
Denna becksvarta ådra

Ur berget en staty
Av makt nu stiga
I nordiska natten
Tusen ogon sina

Berget dåna kraft mit fylla
Denna urgud alla trollfolk hylla

Denna jord denna kraft
Som nu visat sig
Denna makt som lovats
Förnekas ej
Ett spjut jag skall smida och vässa
Trollfolkets strävan den må vara rung
Den dag dock råda da jag heta kung

Kung över folken av troll...

    General CommentMy translation:

    The path leads higher up
    Towards the snow-white peak of the black mountain
    A noble view you can expect
    Ancient strength and true honour

    I baptize my mind
    In the river of truth
    That flows out of the mountain
    This pitch-black vein

    Out of the mount
    A statue of might now rises
    In the nordic night
    A thousand eyes shine

    This mountain fills me with power
    This primal god that all troll-people worship

    This earth, this power
    Which has now dared to show itself
    The promised might
    Has not been denied
    A spear I will forge and sharpen
    The crown of the troll-people will honour my head*
    The burden of the troll-people must be heavy
    There will be day when I will be king

    King over the people of the trolls
