Al Svartr (the Oath)


Hark, O Nightspirit

Father of my dark self

From within this realm, wherein Thou dwelleth

By this lake of blood from which we feed to breed

I call silently for thy presence as I lay this oath

May the night carry my will

And may these old mountains forever remember this night

May the forest whisper my name

And may the storm bring these words to the end of all worlds

May the wise moon be my witness

As I swear on my honour

In respect of my pride and darkness itself

That I shall rule by the blackest wisdom

O Nightspirit

I am one with Thee

I am the eternal power

I am The Emperor

Winds and storms, embrace us now

Lay waste the light of day

Open the gates to darker lands

We spread our wings and fly away
