Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody – Yggdrasil Lyrics

By Azlyrics

In the beginning there was the Void, the unending emptiness reigning alone
Then the existence could shape new origin, a cosmic sparkle of intimate force
It grew and spread, first form of life, what’d become known as the “giant world tree”
While all around primal energies formed, the eternal emptiness finally filled

Ex nilo Niflheim, ex nilo Muspellheim
Ad omnium Ymir, nova creatio

Ex nilo Niflheim, ex nilo Muspellheim
Ad omnium Ymir, nova creatio

Water, ice and storming fire
Pulsing heart of all things
The new destiny was written

Carved in the wise trunk, the secrets of the holy runes
Set the fate of Asgard, Hel and Midgard
Roots of ancient might, reflected in Valhalla’s light
Odin’s eye, the eagle eye of Yggdrasil

He sought for knowledge, immortal truth
He walked alone, facing hope, fear and ghosts
To where the mist hides the deep astral secrets
There where the Nornir control the nine worlds

On that high branch his sacrifice
Flesh of the gods ripped for nine days and nights
The naked spirit as his final offer
While the dark waters reflected pure light

Ex nilo Niflheim, ex nilo Muspellheim
Ad omnium Ymir, nova creatio

Ex nilo Niflheim, ex nilo Muspellheim
Ad omnium Ymir, nova creatio

Greatly enflamed by runic power
Shine the lights of Bifrost
In Odin’s wounds the key of wisdom

Carved in the wise trunk, the secrets of the holy runes
Set the fate of Asgard, Hel and Midgard
Roots of ancient might, reflected in Valhalla’s light
Odin’s eye, the eagle eye of Yggdrasil

Yggdrasil

Greatly enflamed by runic power
Shine the lights of Bifrost
Alte in core lapidis est intima sapientia

Carved in the wise trunk, the secrets of the holy runes
Set the fate of Asgard, Hel and Midgard
Roots of ancient might, reflected in Valhalla’s light
Odin’s eye, the eagle eye of Yggdrasil

Carved in the wise trunk, the secrets of the holy runes
Set the fate of Asgard, Hel and Midgard
Roots of ancient might, reflected in Valhalla’s light
Odin’s eye, the eagle eye of Yggdrasil

Carved in the wise trunk, the secrets of the holy runes
Set the fate of Asgard, Hel and Midgard
Roots of ancient might, reflected in Valhalla’s light
Odin’s eye, the eagle eye of Yggdrasil
