Yule Feasting Song          Yule Feasting Song MP3 (2,7 MB)
Tune: Diana L.Paxson
Alternative tune: "Good King Wenceslas", trad.

Ingvi-Frey, the King of Bliss,
Lord of love and gladness,
Giver of the harvest gifts,
Let him banish sadness!

Chorus:
Hail him now and give him thanks,
Ask him for his blessing!
Always give back gift for gift:
Let not friendship lessen!

Freya, golden Vanadis,
Mighty Queen of magic!
Join us for our Yuletide feast,
Share our fun and frolic!

Chorus:
Hail her now and give her thanks,
Ask her for her blessing!
Always give back gift for gift:
Let not friendship lessen!

Mighty Thor the Thunder-God,
Midgard´s great defender!
Redbeard, share our meat and mead,
Lest you grow too slender!

Chorus: Hail him now...

Sif the shining Harvest Queen,
Thor´s beloved helpmate,
Thrudheim´s graious chatelaine,
Bles us as we fill our plates!

Chorus: Hail her now...

Woden, Wish-God, wisdom´s Lord,
Wod and wonder-bringer,
Tell us of your treasure-hoard,
Give holy mead to singers!

Chorus: Hail him now...

Frigga, hearth and home´s bright core,
Giver of life´s blessings!
Keeper of the secret lore,
Including lore of dressing!

Chorus: Hail her now...
