On this a Yuletide day
Remember Balder fair and bright
Will be reborn of light
To guide us through the darkened night
And give us hope and joy

Ohhh tidings of hope and of joy,
Hope and of joy,
Ohhh tidings of hope and of joy.

The Solstice night is long and dark
The Wild Hunt it will ride
Odhinn leads the frenzied host
Across the Northern skies
To cleanse the last of barren land
And guide the dead back home

Ohhh tidings to the wandering dead,
Wandering dead,
Ohhh tidings to the wandering dead.

The flame and fire flicker bright
Upon the sacred hearth
To scratch a spell and runic tell
Of this year's fortune's worth
Oh Heimdall guide the sons of man
That they should tarry not

Ohhh tidings to the sons of Rig,
Sons of Rig,
Ohhh tidings to the sons of Rig.

The sacred boar is settled now
Upon the holy feast
Lay your hand and give the oath
Upon the hallowed beast
It is your honour and your word
In Asgard that is heard

Ohhh tidings to the gods all high,
Gods all high,
Ohhh tidings to the gods all high.

M Odinsdatter (Ve Vindhler) 2008
