I Leave Upon This Altar

In the name of Odin, I pray to thee
Requesting guidance, asking to see
The challenges I'll face soon, the hardships for me
And what I need to do to overcome, to be

I leave upon this altar: A splash of mead
I leave upon this altar: My prayer to thee

I kneel before your shrine; not a pilgrim or a priest
I kneel before your shrine; to ask wisdom of thee
One man to another; though the differences are great
A boy asking to his father; what is to be his fate

I leave upon this altar: A splash of mead and hopes
That soon you'll come down to me, to show me the ropes
