367. The Blessing
" Live with Odin's wisdom, Freyja's love, and Thor's protection ! "
This verbal expression is more than a simple religious blessing,
They are powerful words, an invocation, a most sacred projection,
A way to bestow a divine favor on those who you are addressing.
This phrase is interchangeable, for our Gods number fifty - two,
Some are War Gods, Fertility Gods, and a Skald who tells a story.
With so many, simply choose the Great Gods that walk with you,
And bless our folk with their sacred names, and their divine glory.
Lift your arms overhead, your hands to the high heavens raise,
Accept the Gods into your open heart, and then let them radiate out,
Allow their power to shine through as you speak the sacred phrase,
And voice your faith in this sanction, in the form of a blessed shout !
