Raven Father

Knowing one, seeing twice
Blood & fire, mead & ice
He himself the sacrifice
Rider of the Tree

Wine his food, words his need
Ice & iron, air & mead
Thrice hath Gunnlodh held his seed
God of Poetry

Treasures four, half the slain
Stone & sorrow, gold & rain
Five-fold knowledge bought with pain
Wounded majesty

Jord and Rind, Frigg enfold
Rain & riddles, stone & gold
Six sons do his promise hold
One-Eye, bound and free

Seven signs mark his own
Rune & ransom, spear & bone
Eight-legged steed and highest throne
Lord of Ecstasy

Nine the worlds, ever near
Bone & silver, rune & spear
Watch and wander, ward and steer
Cloaked in mystery

On the Tree, in the Well
Ring & water, breath & spell
He is more than words may tell
Wodan, Vili, Ve

Fenris-foe, knowing death
Spell & silence, blood and breath
Work and words inspireth
All-Father is he
Odhin here we see

Chant: 
Raven Father, drawing nigh
Raven wings embrace the sky
This world watched with Raven Eye
Mystery with the other
Wonder to discover
Odhinn here we see
