Ostara
Traditional Irish Tune "Sunrise", as performed by Altan 

With the dawning of the sun, Ostara morning has begun!
Hail to the gods and the goddesses in Asgard fair!
Feel the growing of Her light, it's swelling with Ostara's might
Springtime is upon us dwelling in Thor's Midgard care!

Oh, hail to Thunar, jotuns' bane! Our lives are spared, we thrive again!
Hail to Freyja fair, our prosperity is from her love!
Hail to to Frey, king of the land, the providence from his strong hand
Gives us call to raise our horns up to the gods above!

Can you see the dark of night fade with golden warmth and light?
The time is come for all anew and folk to rejoice! Winter's through!
Life on Midgard thrives again! The Ragnarok will nae be ken!
Let there be another year for Our Folk to be Tru!

Ah, the green growth all around and the fauna to be found!
The time for niflnight is past, and we endured to spring, at last!
Hail, Ostara, Winter's foe! To us your golden radi'nce show
As the wheel spins once again, our Wyrd we share with you!

Oh, planting fields and raising kine is work we must begin in time
Never shall we starve, so long as we retain our might
Ostara shows the path now plain, the growing season with sweet rain
We must not forget to share our bounty with each wight

Harvest comes with all due haste, a single crumb we must not waste
Then the winter comes, and Ullr takes back his land
But we all know the wheel turns, Ostara's power Midgard earns
Life begins again each spring by sweet Ostara's hand!

Can you see the dark of night fade with golden warmth and light?
The time is come for all anew and folk to rejoice! Winter's through!
Life on Midgard thrives again! The Ragnarok will nae be ken!
Let there be another year for Our Folk to be Tru!

Ah, the green growth all around and the fauna to be found!
The time for niflnight is past, and we endured to spring, at last!
Hail, Ostara, Winter's foe! To us your golden radi'nce show
As the wheel spins once again, our Wyrd we share with you!
