The eye of black will mirror the sea
The wing will write runes in the sky
The saga about the warrior who gave
A drink of his blood to Drakkar

Grim’s bird! Can you see
Warrior lies on the shield
Grim’s bird! Can you hear
A sea dragon’s cry for the killed

One flap of the wing – and the black arrow
Is leading the ship again
One flap of the wing – and the cry of the raven
Is waking the one who is slain

The flight of Odin’s bird is writing
Runes in the Northern sky
The flight of the raven sends black arrows
Piercing the stormy night
