The 13th Warrior

Merciful Father,

I have squandered my days with plans of many things,

This was not among them. But at this moment.

I beg only to live the next few minutes well.

For all we ought to have thought, and have not thought;

All we ought to have said, and have not said;

All we ought to have done, and have not done;

I pray thee God for forgiveness.


Lo, there do I see my father,

Lo, there do I see my mother,

Lo, there do I see my people back to the beginning.

Lo, they do call to me,

They bid me take my place among them,

In the halls of Valhalla,

Where the brave may live forever.
