Odin (Woden)

I will hail the bold God, lord of Asgard´s hosts,
I will praise the lord of Valhalla.
I will celebrate His strength, cunning and wisdom,
This God of warriors and kings.
I will praise Him, the Allfather,
Husband of Frigga, Delight of Her arms.
I will hail the Drighten and Ring-Giver,
Whose gifts inspire His chosen.
I will laud this Wooer of women,
Whisperer of charms and seduction.
I will sing of the Master of Poets,
Ensnarer of many an unwary heart.
I will raise a horn in His honor.
May victory be yours, Valfağr.
Hail, Woden! Hail the Wisest of Counselors!
