Frigga the Fair

Hail to Frigga the Fair, Goddess of Home and Hearth,
The Mistress of Marsh-Hall---Her Serene and Safe Garth.
Model of Motherhood---All-Father's Wedded Wife,
Our aid through All ages and All stages of Life.
Hail to the Holy Queen! Hail to Her Handmaids all!
With Love and Loyalty---to One and All we call!

Saga---the Seeress of Past/Present Song-Seeds,
Her Golden Cup filled Full---with all Days and all Deeds.

Eir---our Foremost Physician of Physical-wealth,
She bestows Her blessings---of Harmonious-health.

Gefjon---Mistress of Maidens awaiting Rebirth,
Lovingly She allows---Their merriment and mirth.

Fulla---the Steadfast Sister with Gold-woven hair,
Regal Maid of Riches---Kept safely in Her care.

Sjofn---our Generous Goddess shall Guide and Advise,
As Matron of Marriage---All-knowing and All-wise.

Lofn---ever Praised as the Goddess of Goodwill,
Our passion She permits---Requests She will Fulfill.

Var---the Holy Handmaiden hears True-oaths of Trust,
Word-breakers fear Her wrath---for Var is Fair and Just.

Vor---Frigga's Watchful Warder is ever Aware,
All-Seeing in All-Worlds---Well/Tree-sights She will share.

Syn---Denial-goddess and Divine-defender,
Thewful force within us---She rightly shall render.

Hlin---Guardian Goddess of the Queen's Midgarth kin,
With Her shielding Sig-ways---our Refuge She will win.

Snotra---our Goddess-guide of Silence or Prudent Speech,
Woe-words halted and held---Wisdom-words She shall Teach.

Gna---the Monarch's Messenger rides Her sacred Steed,
Astride horse Hoof-Tosser--She attains Raidho's Rede.
Praise to Frigga the Fair, Asgarth's High Holy Queen,

Within the Well She sees---Ygg's Tree of Evergreen.
Our Silent Seeress---we Worship and Adore,
Her Holy Handmaidens---Bless us Now as Before.
Frigga of Home and Hearth---Woden's Beloved Wife,
Our aid through All ages and All stages of Life!
