Praise to Loki

Magician, Clown and Laughter-Maker
Shaper of Change, Guide to Madness,
Fettered, come fast from Kettle-Grove!

Sleipnir´s Mother, Fenris-Father,
Laufey´s offspring and Farbauti´s,
Odin´s oath-brother, all-seeing eye.

Confederate and corrupter,
Sif´s coiffeur, Mjolnir´s retriever,
Lend us your laughter, Loptr come!

Byleist´s brother, loosen your bonds,
Free our souls, lend wings to our mind,
Spouse of Sigyn, for rapturous play.

Pilgrim in all the Worlds,
Torch of change, give us your glow,
Open our hearts, Loki, come!
