Sweet Frigga      
 
Sweet Frigga of the spinning wheel.
Who spins the strands we call our life.
Your love, so strong, so very real.

You've answered my lonely appeal.
Though in sad seclusion I do live.
Sweet Frigga of the spinning wheel.

In a world both mundane and surreal.
You've succored me, my goddess.
Your love, so strong, so very real.

Your kindly blessings I do feel.
Having happily felt your fair grace.
Sweet Frigga of the spinning wheel.

Frith, frugality and women's weals
Are the gifts you shower down.
Your love, so strong, so very real.

My troth I give, though I do not kneel.
Sweet Frigga of the spinning wheel.
Your love, so strong, so very real.
