Riding through the night, the shining company

Riding ‘Neath the sky, battle hound behind

Come the gathering, drinking horns of mead

The feast of brotherhood, northern high kings

Desolate days, shame and sorrow

Grave sods crumble, for the morrow

A winter wind, foredoomed we ride

Under the dragon, standard high

Into woodland winds, to realms of silent death

Baleful chaos rise, amid enkindled rage

Pallid hue of death, a mirthful end awaits

We go to our end below, the eternal abyss untrod

Shrilling arrows descend

Bestow the mangled dead

War gods guide our souls

Foredoomed we ride ahead

Life is made for sorrow

Leading to the tomb

In wretched war we wallow

To fade into the gloom

Under whispering stars

The shining company

Crimson torrents will flow

Through blood

Ravens soaring above

The shining company

Lightning swift our steeds
