Hail the Blest Gods               Hail the Blest Gods MP3 (1,2MB)

Hail the blest Gods! See the rainbow of Asgard,
Bifrost, the bridge to the Aesirīs abode!
Hail to the far-seeing watcher and guardian,
Faithful defender of radiant road.
Hail to you, Heimdall, our elder and ancestor!
Hymns we will sing to the High Ones and you.
Come, let us call to the Megin once more,
Rig, tell the Regin their folk still is true.

Say, shall we give now in grateful devotion
Blots to the Aesir, and offerings divine:
Bread from the cornfield and fish from the ocean,
Mead from the beehive and gold from the mine?
All our lives shall be one dedication,
All our efforts to them shall belong.
Dear to the Gods is the soulīs adoration,
Near to their hearts are our prayers and song.
