​Hallowed Halls

This song is by Forefather and appears on the album Steadfast (2008).

Gathered together
The meoduseld shining brightly
Cempan and ealdormen
In a drunken dream
Among all the riches
And relics of many hearth-kin
Foretell unyielding
Their coming feats and deeds

Harp strings, stout-played
Sing the praises of many ring-lord
Lay of blood-reddened fields
Myriad foes cleaved
Spear's flight nor sword edge
Did smash his almighty war-disc
Honour did save him for future king to be

Oh, they feast in their hallowed halls
Ghostly warriors ashen and pale
Shadows dance in the light of the flame
Gold and majesty, glory and fame

Pour from the well
Ahare a toast with our nation's heroes
Beauty unheard of will carry us the mead
Fortune this night
Brings a war-leader far across the sea
By his hand we may from demon scourge be freed

Oh, they feast in their hallowed halls
Ghostly warriors ashen and pale
Shadows dance in the light of the flame
Gold and majesty, glory and fame
Oh, they feast in their hallowed halls
Ghostly warriors ashen and pale
Bold they rode on the crest of a wave
Shielded tight in a womb of oak staves
