O Sunwheel Bright         O Sunwheel Bright MP3 (2 MB)

Tune: Sussex Carol, first tune. Traditional English.

O Sunwheel Bright, the Sunwheel´s flame
rolls down the hills where gods once came.
They come again, their mighty strides
draw us, their folk, close to their sides.

Chorus:
Come one, come all, unto the call,
Come Gods, come Goddesses and folk, all.

O Sunwheel clear, your burning might
Has marked our deepest wisdom-sight.
Through midwinter, midsummer, gladness & tears,
You turn the corners of all our years.

Chorus

O Sunwheel shining, flame of our soul,
Now through your burning we are made whole.
The needfire´s smoke of summer does heal,
While Yule log's blessing brings us weal.

Chorus

O Sunwheel spinning, Sunna´s might,
Thor´s whirling hammer, Gungnir´s flight,
From Freya´s glowing Brisingamen,
Your main flows out, you draw main in.

Chorus

O Sunwheel golden, strength of the land,
Mark earth and sky with your blazing brand!
Rune of giving, sigil of might:
Your power shines holy in Heathen sight!
