His mother would scoop him up in her arms and whisper the same words every night. Always the same words. It was an old song she sung. On the wings of her sweet voice, it entered his innermost being, while his wide eyes sparkled. It never left until the day he died.
You always shall endure
When all your foes they come
Hold fast to strength and wrath
And victory is yours
Hold fast, hold fast, my son
Though giants do close in
The gods will see and cheer
