Icelandic lyricsEdit

Víkingur á vorkvöldi
vakir yfir ánum.
Fullþroskaðar fífunar
fellir hann með ljánum.

Baldur heitir bóndinn
sem beitir þarna ljánum.

Friðartímar, falleg nótt,
fjölskyldan hans sefur.
Hæfilega heitan brodd
heimalningnum gefur.

Baldur heitir bóndinn
sem bústnu lambi gefur.

Gleður bæði goð og menn,
gæfan fylgir honum.
Víf hann á sem værðarleg
vakir yfir sonum.

Baldur heitir bóndinn
sem býr að þessum sonum.

Hann á þessa heiðnu jörð:
hæðir, tún og lækir
Baldur heitir bóndinn sem
bagga sína sækir.

Baldur heitir bóndinn
sem bagga sína sækir

Goðunum þakkar hann góðæristímana langa,
gjöfult er landið frá fjalli og allt út á skaga.
Langsverðið hans hefur lengi fengið að hanga
lóðrétt við síðu því engin er þörf á að draga.

Blikur á lofti og brátt gæti örlagavindur
blásið um sveitirnar hráslagalegur og kaldur.
Við Urðarbrunn Skuld núna örlagahnútana bindur
uggalausum manni og maðurinn sá heitir Baldur.

English TranslationEdit

A viking on an eve of spring
keeps watch over his sheep.
The ripe cotton grass
he fells with his scythe.

Baldur is the farmer
who wields the scythe.

Times of peace, a beautiful night
his family is sleeping.
Moderately warm milk
he feeds the home-fed lamb.

Baldur is the farmer
who is feeding a plump lamb.

Please men and gods alike
blessed by good luck.
He has a wife who calmly
watches over his sons.

Baldur is the farmer
who has these sons.

He owns this heathen land
hills, fields and streams.
Baldur is the farmer who
fetches his bales.

Baldur is the farmer
who fetches his bales.

He thanks the gods his long years of prosperity,
the land is fertile from the mountain and out onto the cape.
His longsword has hung for a long time
perpendicular by his side because there is no need to unsheathe it.

A change in the air and soon winds of fate
could blow over the countryside bleak and cold.
By the Well of Urður, Skuld ties the knot of fate
of an unsuspecting man and that man is Baldur.
