Hail to the gods!
Hail to the goddesses!
Hail to this fruitful earth!
Grant to us
speech and wisdom
and healing hands
as long as we live!
Hail to the day!
Hail to the sons of day!
Hail dark night and her sister!
Look upon us
with kind eyes
and grant victory
to those before you!
From The Lay of Sigdrifa,
a 6th century Viking poem.
