Lyrics:

"The Priest from the Faroes"

Raised on the Faroe Islands by a Bishop
Trained all his life to become a priest
But he felt a calling for might and glory
So he sailed to Norway, his homeland in the east

His mother had told him his father
had been a king of great might
And so, the priest from the Faroes
Set out to reclaim his birthright

In Norway, a civil war was raging
King Magnus against the Birkebeiners, poorest of all
The Birkebeiners needed a leader
And the priest from the Faroes answered the call

He led his armies to victory
King Magnus' father was slain
The priest from Faroes put his mark upon the land
And all would remember his name

And so through the following years
He waged his war throughout the land
And where ever he went
Victory followed fast

Until King Magnus was no more
and the priest from the Faroes,
King Sverre
ruled all of Norway at last

Raised on the Faroe Islands
Sailed to Norway, his homeland
His priesthood
was a thing of the past

He led his armies to victory
Until the priest from the Faroes,
King Sverre
ruled all of Norway at last
[Exit]
