Heathen Wedding Song                   Heathen Wedding Song MP3
                                                     Sheet Music
1. Aesir and Vanir we call to witness:
These two people join in love.
Let them be healthy, let them be happy,        (or: fruitful)
Bring your blessings from above.

Come to us, come! Freya and Frey!
Bless this husband, bless this wife.
Come to us, come! Freya and Frey!
Bless them all their life.

2. On the roads of life you roam,
Safely fare forth, and safely return.
Beauty and bounty be in your home,
And brightly shall your hearthfire burn.

Come to us, come! Odin and Frigg!
Bless this husband, bless this wife.
Come to us, come! Odin and Frigg!
Bless them all their life.

3. May you meet each challenge together,
Strenght and courage help you strive.
Sunshine or rain, in every weather
What you plant shall grow and thrive.

Come to us, come! Thor and Sif!           (or: Wing-Thor)
Bless this husband, bless this wife.
Come to us, come! Thor and Sif!
Bless them all their life.

4. Your strands of fate are now entwining,
May the Nornir weave you well.
Family, Disir, friends combining
Wish you luck, whereever you dwell.

Come to us, come! Ancestors all!
Bless this husband, bless this wife.
Come to us, come! Ancestors all!
Bless them all their life.

5. These two people promised to marry,
Let us see them walk down the aisle;
Let them step forward, let them not tarry,
They will be wed in a just short while.

Come to us, come! Kinfolk and friends!
Bless this husband, bless this wife.
Come to us, come! Kinfolk and friends!
Bless them all their life.
