Hail to the Day         Hail to the Day MP3   Morning has Broken Midi    Sheet music page 1, page 2 

Hail to the Day,
hail the sons of Day,
hail to the night and daughter of night.
With eyes of kindness
look upon us all,
victory give to us who sit here.

Hail the Aesir,
hail the Asynjur,
hail to the Earth so fruitful and wide.
Fair speech and counsel
give to us glorious ones,
and healing hands as long as we live.
