[Music - Andersen - lyrics - Frederiksen]

[Brages Cup.
A song about a toast to a dead warrior, followed by a promise to deliver a great act of courage. The god Brage was the god of poetry and the bжger (literally the beaker) drunk in his honour is the actual toast. The oath was called a Bragelшfte (Brage-oath) and is probably the origin of the English verb "to brag".]

Brages bжger, mjшden skжnkes,
Brages bжger, Mjшlner skildres,
Brages bжger, sшlvbelagte,
Brages bжger, hшare min lшfte.

Hшare! I hin gamles navn, under Mjшlners tegn,
Kruset lшftes hшjt, brшdre I vor sal,
Hedengangne mжnd, mindes for deres dеd,
Drik et drag til dem, og din egen жre!

Brages bжger, mjшden skжnkes,
Brages bжger, Mjшlner skildres,
Brages bжger, sшlvbelagte,
Brages bжger, hшare min lшfte.

Hшare! I hin gamles navn, under Mjшlners tegn,
Kruset lшftes hшjt, ed aflжgger jeg.
Vestpе sшger jeg, svжrdet synger gжvt,
Velstand lover jeg, til den, der fшlger.

Brages bжger, mjшden skжnkes,
Brages bжger, Mjшlner skildres,
Brages bжger, sшlvbelagte,
Brages bжger, hшare min lшfte.

Hey!

Brages bжger, mjшden skжnkes,
Brages bжger, Mjшlner skildres,
Brages bжger, sшlvbelagte,
Brages bжger, hшare min lшfte.
