Prayer to Odin

Hail Odin
Grey Wanderer
For many years You have knocked at the hidden doors to my soul,
Patient yet ever insistent: awaiting my response.

Hail Odin
All Father
You who knows the passageways to my heart.
Yet patient, waiting, not treading there within uninvited.

Hail Odin
Wise One
You teach me the greater worth of a path freely chosen.
I welcome You now into my heart, unfettered by reservation.

Hail Odin
Spear Shaker
You who incites wars amongst nations and the battles within each man’s heart:
You spur me now to rise to Your challenge.

Hail Odin
One Eyed God
Your quest unhalted by sacrifice
So do I commit to follow Your will.

Hail Odin
Master of the Runes
Through Your Gift we glimpse the web of Wyrd
So do I seek the knowledge Your Staves reveal.

Hail Odin
Patron to the skalds
Bringer of the mead of inspiration
May my words be pleasing to Your ears.

Hail Odin
Master of Fury
Primal and uncontained: dictated by necessity.
May I persevere, unrepressed, in adversity.

Hail Odin
Valföğr
My Your Valkyries find me worthy
When the web of my life is cut.
