Brages Bæger

Danish to English Translation:

Brage’s Cup

Music: Andersen, lyrics: Frederiksen

Brage’s cup, the mead is poured
Brage’s cup, Mjølner is depicted
Brage’s cup, silver covered
Brage’s cup, hear my oath

Hark! In the name of the old one, under the sign of Mjølner
The mug is lifted high, brothers in our hall
Deceased men, remembered for their deeds
Drink a draught for them and their honour

Brage’s cup…

Hark! In the name of the old one, under the sign of Mjølner
The mug is lifted high, an oath I swear
Westwards I seek, the sword sings stalwartly
Wealth I promise to he who follows

Brage’s cup…
