Wind Thats Always Turning            Wind Thats Always Turning MP3
Tune: "Nol Nouvelet", France, 15th century

Wind thats always turning,
Fires singeing burn,
Souls eternal yearning,
Wod with which I churn,

God to which Im given,
Trickster whom I trust,
Will by which Im driven,
wishing what I must,

Whom I follow, Wanderer
hiding from my view,
Mystery and wonder:
All this, Hr, is you.

Rider who keeps urging,
granting no reprieve,
Prize with payment merging,
mingling joy with grief,

Gallows where Im dangling
bound to Midgards pain,
Noose which slowly strangling
embraces me again,

Spear by which Im riven,
Death consuming me,
Love for which Im living,
Liege who sets me free.

Lord for whom Im singing,
Lavisher of lore,
Gold ring breaker, bringing
wisdom to my store,

Well of words and verses,
Weaver of my art,
Breath of universes,
Healer of my heart,

Way on which I wander,
Goal for which Im due,
Riddle which I ponder:
All this, Hr, is you.
