Nerthus Meal Blessing

 

Earth, Holy Mother,
I eat this food with gratitude,
Knowing that others have died
That I might live.
Life, as it must, feeds on Life.
When my turn comes
To be eaten, rather than to eat,
may I go willingly.

              *

Ancient Goddess, Mother Earth;
Holy Nerthus gives us birth.
When our days come to an end,
Mother calls us back again.
