As for the Aesir         As for the Aesir MP3

As for the Aesir, to which we now sing,
B is for blot and the best that we bring,
C is the circle in which we now stand,
and D for the deeds of our hand.

E is elation whenever we pray,
F is for Frigga and Freya and Frey,
G is the Guardian and Gjallarhorn's sound,
H the horn which in sumbel goes round.

I is Idunna, of Bragi the wife,
J is for Jord, who nurtures all life,
K is for Kvasir, the wisest of wits,
L for Lofn and love she permits.

M is for Midgard, the earth which we tread,
N are the Nornir who spin our thread,
O is for Odin, the Wanderer old,
and P is for poetry bold.

Q is for questing, for riddles and tales,
R is for Redbeard, the master of gales,
S is for Saga, Sokkvabekk's host,
T for Tyr and the hand that he lost.

U is uniting of hearts when we meet,
V are the Vaettir, the landwights we greet,
W, well where wisdom is sought,
and Xchange is what pays for the draught.

Y is for Yggdrasil, mighty World Tree,
Z the zeal of you and of me.
