Heathen heart
Pagan pride
Faring far
Sword by side

Tribal times
Northern nights
Hidden high
Runic rites I was told:

Hold the heathen hammer high
Hold the heathen hammer high
Hold the heathen hammer high

Hold the heathen hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Ever true unto your forefathers stalwart stay

Hold the Heathen Hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Down the wayward way so far faring strangers stray
Hold the heathen hammer high

Weather wild
Blackened blade
Angry eyes
Ruthless raid

Heathen heart
Pagan pride
Faring far
Sword by side
Hard and cold

Hold the heathen hammer high
Hold the heathen hammer high
Hold the heathen hammer high

Hold the heathen hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Ever true unto your forefathers stalwart stay

Hold the Heathen Hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Down the wayward way so far faring strangers stray
Hold the heathen hammer high

From a pagan past that only the heathen hold
From the far end of the world and of times untold
I bring message to your midst of the ways of old
Ways reluctantly abandoned if truth be told

Ways abandoned for a scavenger of our souls
Living on malicious lies, hiding in the holes
Cruel and credible as any our tale of trolls
Hold the heathen hammer highest of all your goals

Hold the heathen hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Ever true unto your forefathers stalwart stay

Hold the Heathen Hammer high with a battle cry
For the pagan past I live and one day will die
Hold the heathen hammer high, never turn away
Down the wayward way so far faring strangers stray
Hold the heathen hammer high
Hold the heathen hammer high

    General CommentThis song is not quite antichristian but rather traditional and it seems like their culture( nordic culture) is suffocated by christianity in any way possible and seem this song is like a fight back against christianity as seen from the official video released by the band. They actually are more focused on their culture which embraces the manliness to accept things they did bad rather than lie like christians and pretend a false repent...This song is an embrace of a life style. Message for ApolloniusRex: "NO CHRISTIANS ALOUD!"
