Now the winter wind blows cold, now the turning year
While the world is held in thrall, let the Yule fire warm our hall.
Freyr and Freya now we pray,
bless our yuletide feast today!
Lovely is the evergreen: Holly´s King and Ivy´s
Rosemary and fragant bays deck the tokens of our praise. -- Chorus
Of all the gods have given men, we give a portion
Wheaten bread and honey wine, ripened fruit and cornfed swine. -- Chorus
Lady, bless us with your love as you bless the gods
Lord of Luck, we sing to you, make life leap in us anew. -- Chorus
Bless the master and the maid, the child within the
Bless our bread and bless our beer, prosper us throughout the year. -- Chorus
Put the darkness now to flight, bless the waiting
world with light;
Health and strength for each one here give us in the coming year. -- Chorus
