One man rode the way through the woods

Down to Asa Bay

Where dragon ships had sailed to sea

More times than one could say

To see with own eyes the wonder

People told, from man to man

The God of all almightiness

Had arrived from a foreign land

The rumors told of a man

Who had come from the other side the seas

Carrying gold cross around neck in chain

And spoke in strange tongue of peace

He had come with strange men in armor

Dressed in purple shirts and lace

Smelling not of beer but flowers

And with no hair in face

And the bold man carrying cross

Had told all one of Asa Bay

The God of all man, woman, child had come

To them all save

And to thank Lord of Heaven

One should build to God a house

And to save one's soul from Hell

One should be baptized and say vows

A man of pride with the hammer told new God

To build his house on own

And spoke loud of the Gods of their fathers

Not too long time gone

The rumors said the man with a beard like fire

And the hammer in chain

By men in armor silenced was and by

Their swords was slain

Those who did not pay the one coin

Of four to man of new God

Whipped was twenty and put in chains then locked

By their neck to the log, to the log

And so all of Asa Bay did build

A house of the cross

Every hour of daylight they did sweat

Limbs ached because faith does cost

And on the day two hundred

There it stood white to the sky

The house of the God of the cross

Big enough to take two dragon ships inside

And all of Asa Bay did watch

The wonder raise to the sky

Now must the God of the cross be pleased

And satisfied

Just outside the circle of the crowd

One old man did stand

He looked across the waters

And blotted the sun out of his eyes with one hand

And his old eyes could almost see

The dragon ships set sail

And his old ears could almost hear

Men of great numbers call out Oden's hail

And though he did know already

Though he turned face towards sky

And whispered silent words forgotten

Spoken only way up high

Now this house of a foreign God does stand

Now must they leave us alone

Still he heard from somewhere in the woods

Old crow of wisdom say

"People of Asa land, it's only just begun"
