I See You -A Song for Odin

To hear me sing this song for Odin, look here.

I see You in storms and I see You in wind

In the woods, carved and formed from Oak

I see You in the eyes of the homeless folk

World-weary, world-walking, wandering, and worried

I see You in my father’s eyes

The wisdom springs up through the ages behind him

I see You in the statue shaped by skillful hands

The offerings about You: splintered staff, spear, and swords

I see You in the mirror behind my own eyes

Your hand at my neck, wiring me for Your Work

I see You when I don my brown hat and black coat

I can feel Your gait in my legs as I walk

I see You in the stories I read to my child

The drawings full of life and his smile that abounds

I see You in the words that I speak to the world

By hand and by voice you have told me to tell

So hail to You, Galdrafaðr, You Who Sang the Runes’ songs

So hail to You, FimbulÞulr, You Who Inspires the Poets to verse

So hail to You, Sigrhöfundr, You Victory-Giver to the scribe, skald, and song
