Helheim is Waiting

1. Blessed assurance, I have been told
A land awaits me tho sick or old
We have been promised, for us a new life
Free from our troubles, free from our strife.

This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call
This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call.

2. Death equals all, for we all will die
Wealthy or poor no time can we buy
Give up your robes, tho purple they be
Only untouched by greed can be free.

This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call
This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call.

3. Armies of battles long ago lost
Fight for all time re-gardless of cost
The warrior must know, time comes to rest
To give up their hate, to end their quest.

This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call
This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call.

4. I have but to walk there, follow the way
The path is winding, but I will not stray
Arrive at the gates, I will go through
Family and friends there, all that I knew.

This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call
This is our promise, a promise to all
Hellheim is waiting for those that call.


To the tune of the 1873 hymn “Blessed Assurance” by Fanny Crosby, melody by Phoebe Knapp.
