27/03/2020 Lyrics from the Nordic Patterns album.

02 Kutkäldu

Vatn rennr eins ok lífið

Water flows like life

Frá fjöllum að lækjum

From mountain to stream

Frá lækjum til sjávar

From stream to sea

Frá sjó til lofts

From sea to air

Endalaust aftr

Eternally recurring

03 Gnisvärd

Gnisvärd, vér koma að

Gnisvard, we come to

Galdra ok seðir að

Galdra and Sethir to

Goð ok Guðinna

Gods and Goddesses

Tolum við þá

Talking to them

Á svörtum nótt eða

Whether black is the night

Bjartum degi

Or the day is bright

04 Klangstenen

Freyja vér heillar þu

Freyja, we congratulate you

Freyja vér heillar þér

Freyja, we congratulate you

Freyja vér heillar þig

Freyja, we congratulate you
