Schwarzalbenheim - Therion

[Gold Der Underwelt]

[The dwarves and the black elves live below the ground and in stumps and stones. Among all creatures in the universe they are the foremost blacksmiths. Deep down in the underworld they forge the treasures of gods. They use the metals from the veins of earth to create the most precious things. It has been said that this folk may be able to teach you the secret of alchemy and the knowledge of making gold out of earth.]

Horet ihr der Hammer Hall?
Hor der Hammer Hall!
Ivaldens Sohne sind es, hor
Sie schmieden den gleissend' Schatz
Der Gotter Gottlichkeit

Schwarzalbenheims Gewurm
Schmiedet solch schimmerndes Gold
Der Gotter Glorie gestaltend
Aus der Erde Geader

Tief unten drunter Stein und Wurz
Findest Du dieses selten' Volk
Der Tiefe und lass den eifr'gen Schmied
Schweissen shlau deines Wunschses Bild

Unter unterdes Fjorgyn Haut
In der Erde verborg nem Herzen
Arbeiten Zwerge der Unterwelt
Mit der Gotter gar glanzendem Gold

Draupnir, Mjolnir und Gullburste
Kunst des Schwarzalben
Brokk da Eitre und Sindre
Lass den Hammer schlagem nochmals

Schwarzalbenheims Gewurm
Schmiedet solch schimmerndes Gold
Der Gotter Glorie gestaltend
Aus der Erde Geader

In den Tunneln und den Hohlen
Gleich 'nem Myzelium im Untergrund
Treiben sie voran die Alchemie
Die der Erde Fruchte Schein verleihn

Erinnerungen erschaffend
Aus weiter Ferne zu Goldene
Traume des Morgen zu schaffen
Gotter Runen aus der Erde Tiefe
Sonn' erbluhn!

[English translation]

World of the Black Elves

[Gold of the underworld]

Do you hear the hammers' echo?
Hear the the hammers' echo!
It's Ivalden's sons, listen,
They forge the gleaming treasure
The gods' divineness

Schwarzalbenheim's worms
Forge so gleaming gold
Shaping the glory of the gods
From the veins of the earth

Deep beneath stones and roots
You find this rare folk
Of the depth and let the eager smith
Smartly weld the picture of your wish

Meanwhile beneath Fjorgyn's skin
In the earth's hidden heart
The dwarves of the underworld work
With the gleaming gold of the gods

Draupnir, Mjolnir and Gullburste
Art of the Black Elves
Brokk da Eitre and Sindre
Let the hammer strike again

Schwarzalbenheim's worms
Forge so gleaming gold
Shaping the glory of the gods
From the veins of the earth

In the tunnels and the caves
Like a mycelium in the underground
They press ahead the Alchemy
Which gives shine to the earth's fuits

Creating memories
From far distance to create golden
Dreams of tomorrow
The gods' runes from the depth's
Sun of the earth blossom
