Sing of Mani                    Sing of Mani MP3

Sing of Mani´s lustrous ray,
Incandescent light sublime.
Nightly lantern, Hati´s prey,
Nott´s companion, counting time.
Mani, shine throughout the heavens,
Mani, shine till Sunna´s rise!
Mundilfari´s silent son,
Shine until the end of time.

Sing of Sunna, golden glory,
Fiery goddess of the sky.
Radiant splendor and Sköll´s quarry,
Dag´s companion, flying high.
Sunna, shine throughout the heavens,
Sunna, shine till Mani´s rise!
Mundilfari´s fairest daughter,
Shine until the end of time.

Sing of the Ash that I know standing,
Yggdrasil, the greatest tree.
Three wells springing, in its shadow
Spinning are the Sisters Three.
Wind that whispers in the World Tree
Stirs the leaves, rowns us rede.
Our roots run deep and free,
Our fruits are word and deed.

So we are singing like our sires,
Ever since Ask and Embla´s day.
So we will sing around heathen fires
In the future far away.
Hail o Aesir, hail Asynjur!
Look upon us sitting here!
Hail to the Aesir and the Vanir,
Gods of mankind, always near.
