Gods Bless You, Merry Heathen Folk!    Gods Bless You.. MP3 (1,5 MB)
Tune: "God Rest You, Merry Gentlemen"             MIDI / Noteworthy Composer / PDF

Gods bless you, merry Heathen folk
With luck & health & weal!
Remember all your forebears dear
With horns of Yuletide ale!
Call out your boast, lay orlay bright
That well the Norns may deal!
For our Gods now have called to us--have called, heart to heart,
For our Gods have spoken deep within our souls.

Bright Yrminsul, the Yuletide Tree
Roots deep within the Well,
The Worldtree arches overhead,
Its age no one can tell.
The ancients whisper in our ears:
We dream beneath their spell--
For our Gods now have called to us--have called, heart to heart,
For our Gods have spoken deep within our souls.

Between time past and time to come
A shining bridge is spun
Of lore and love and faithfulness,
All that our deeds have won.
Roll up your sleeve, reach out your hand:
Our work is just begun--
For our Gods now have called to us--have called, heart to heart,
For our Gods have spoken deep within our souls.

Glad Yuletide now we bid you all
With horns of flowing mead!
Bright Yuletide feast in Heathen halls
Shall make us glad indeed!
With frith and faith and wisdom's deeds
We plant the glowing seed--
For our Gods now have called to us--have called, heart to heart,
For our Gods have spoken deep within our souls.
