This can be sung or chanted in a "call and response" manner
when you are setting out to decorate the Yule Tree with your children.

 

 

The Yule-Tree is Big           The Yule-Tree is Big MP3

The Yule-Tree is big, and the branches are bare;
What shall we hang there to make it more fair?


The apple for Idunn, the hammer for Thor,
The gold hair for Sif, and the hand is for Tyr.

The Yule-Tree is big, and the branches are bare;
What shall we hang there to make it more fair?


For Freya the heart, and the pine cone for Frey,
The seashell for Njord, and for Odin the eye.

The Yule-Tree is big, and the branches are bare;
What shall we hang there to make it more fair?


The keys are for Frigg, for Ostara the hare,
The rainbow for all of our Gods who are there.

The Yule-Tree is big and no longer is bare;
The Aesir and Vanir have met and are there.
The Yule-Tree is big and no longer is bare;
The Aesir and Vanir have met and are there.
