Freia's Nine Names

Hail to Freia! Lady of Dark and Light,
Our Lovely Lady of Day and of Night.
Maid/Mother of Seith-crafts both Black and White,
Hail to the Mistress of Magic and Might!

Gullveig--thrice born Seith-bride greedy for gold,
Anon She shall live, beautiful and bold.

Heidh--the Seith-wife, the comely and clever,
To wise-women, She was welcome ever.

Hreda--enchanting Seductress of Spring,
Lustful Lady of Noatun's noble King.

Mardoll--our Shining Mother of the Seas,
Kind Benefactress of comfort and ease.

Mengloth--Mount Lyfja's Mistress and Sun-bride,
Nine Healing Maids, faithfully by Her side.

Horn--flax and fate Mother silently spins,
Always All-knowing, trust and troth She wins.

Syr--bewitching Sig-maiden of the Sun,
Masterful Sword-bride of battles well won.

Gefn--our divine Dis-Giver's touch shall heal,
Powerful Patroness of wealth and weal.

Heithrun--wild and wanton She raptly rides,
In frost-filled forests, under deep dark skies.

Praise to the Ladies of Dark and Light!
Praise to the Ladies of Day and Night!
Praise to Freia, our Mistress of Might!
Praise Her Nine Names and Their Blessings Bright!
