Baptised In Fire And Ice

This song is by Bathory and appears on the album Hammerheart (1990).

Fire and ice
Fire and ice
Fire and ice
Fire and ice

Born a son of Nordic tribe, early spring morning I arrived
When sails were set, the ships all done to sail with wind a waves for long
Down foreign shores across great waters, many hundred miles from home
This half year deep frozen land where I on this morning was born

Proudly my father took me in his arms and walked outside
Where for the first time, light struck me newborn child
And even though told when older I can almost recall the scene
When he held me high up towards the most beautiful sky ever seen

Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice

Oh with gentle hands he did sway me
Over the flames to strengthen and purify
Oh, with loving words did he dab me
With spring's last snow for cleansing me his child

I grew and learned respectfully the earth, wind, water and the sky
The powers that decided the weather and rules both the dark and light
I heard the voices of the spirits of the forest call my name
I saw the hammer way up high cause lightning in the rain

Watching crystal flakes of falling snow on winter nights
Uniting with the pure white flames dance when reaching for the sky
Brings me back to the morning this world, first heard my battle cry
Gently swayed above the flames and cleansed with snow and ice

Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice

Oh, having it with me
From the first day of my life
Oh, always carrying them within me
The powers of fire and ice

Now I pass unto thee
My son what was given to me

Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice
Baptised in fire and ice

Oh, having it with me
From the first day of my life
Oh, always carrying them within me
The powers of fire and ice
