To break my iron-sleep again ;
Till Lok has burft his tenfold chain.
Never, till substantial Night
Has reassum'd her ancient right;
Till wrap'd in flames, in ruin hurlid,
Sinks the fabric of the world.
i Lok is the evil Being, who continues in chains till the Twilight of the Gods approaches, when he shall break his bonds; the human race, the stars, and sun, shall disappear; the earth sink in the seas, and fire consume the skies : even Odin himself and his kindred-deities shall perish.
