Baldur and Nanna

Brave Warrior,
Shining Lord of Justice and Mercy,
We ask for Your blessings and grace.
Compassion flows from Your strong heart and noble brow.
Fearless Lord of Death and rebirth,
Intrepid, You have braved the realm of Hel,
So that we, children of the Gods, might have a champion
To greet us when we too make this perilous journey.
Warrior-born, fill our hearts with Thy quiet courage.
Do not let us falter on our lifeís journey.
Teach us serenity of spirit,
That we might face the turmoil of our lives joyously,
Embracing destiny without fear.
Open our hearts and let us not shrink in terror
From our descent into the earth,
But find in Her dark depths spiritual renewal.
May we live lives of courage, passion, and valor.
Hail, Baldur!

Gentle Nanna, Baldurís devoted wife,
Extend over us Your blessings and protection,
For we often struggle in our lives feeling lost and alone.
Stand with us as You stood with Baldur,
Even joining Him in Helís realm.
Sustain us, nourish us,
And grant us the gift of Your compassion.
Hail Nanna, Daring and Bold,
Compassionate One, Hail.
