Lyrics


High upon the gallows tree swung the noble-hearted three.
By the vengeful tyrant stricken in their bloom;
But they met him face to face, with the courage of their race,
And they went with souls undaunted to their doom.
"Gods save Freya!" said the heroes;
"Gods save Freya" said they all.
Whether on the scaffold high Or the battlefield we die,
Oh, what matter when for Freya dear we fall!!
Girt around with cruel foes, still their courage proudly rose,
For they thought of hearts that loved them far and near;
Of the millions true and brave o'er the ocean's swelling wave,
And the friends in holy Freya ever dear.
"Gods save Freya!" said the heroes;
"Gods save Freya" said they all.
Whether on the scaffold high Or the battlefield we die,
Oh, what matter when for Freya dear we fall!
