Týr and Forseti, holy Lords of Justice!
Look down on what has happened in this nation
See the tears from mother’s eyes
Hear the screams from open mouths
See injustice heaped on injustice
Borne generation after generation
Indignity heaped upon indignity
Murder on murder
The ears of the authorities are shut -open them!
The eyes of the authorities are shut -open them!
The hands of the authorities are shut -open them!
The hearts of the authorities are shut -open them!
May every injustice be known
May every injustice be reckoned
May every injustice be paid for
May every injustice be set right
Týr, one-handed God Who sacrificed
Recognize the sacrifices
Of body, heart, reputation, and soul
Who risk themselves against wolves
Forseti, Lord of lawspeakers
Foremost of mediators,
Let justice be served in letter and life
Protection and power for the people
Holy Gods hear this prayer
Be swift and bless the nation
That justice is restored
That right relationship is reborn
Hail to the Dead who walk under my feet
To fungus and plant, animal and insect
Hail to the Dead who walk with me
To Elements and Gods, Disir and Väter
Hail to the Dead who walk over my head
To stars and skies, Þjazi’s Eyes watching
Hail to the Dead who gird the Worlds
To Ymir’s corpse, and Helheim’s hosts
Hail to the Dead all around
From highest ground to deepest grave
From burial mound and mountain high
From ash and bone, blood and soul
Hail to the Holy Dead
The fool ignores | the lessons of Urð,
spiting wisdom for pride;
No words can reach | whose ears are shut,
nor whose eyes refuse to see
The fool ignores | the lessons of Verðandi,
spiting action for complacence;
No way can be made | by those who stall,
nor whose hands refuse to work
The fool ignores | the lessons of Skuld,
spiting planning for folly;
No path can be lain | by those who are vacant,
nor whose minds refuse to inquire
Oh Ancestors, grant me a tongue that I might speak your words!
Oh Ancestors, grant me hands that I might build up your foundations!
Oh Ancestors, grant me feet that I may stand tall in your ways!
Oh Ancestors, grant me eyes that I may see your path!
Oh Ancestors, grant me words that I may speak to your children!
Oh Ancestors, grant me a voice that I may sing your songs!
Oh Ancestors, grant me a blessing that my soul be ready!
Oh Ancestors, grant me ways that I might reach you!
Oh Ancestors, grant me your Presence that I may know you!
Bless this life you have given me!
Bless this time in which I walk!
Bless this form in which I live!
Blessings to you, Ancestors!
