Give Us the Power To Heal


Hail to thee, day! Hail, ye day’s sons!
Hail, night and daughter of night!
With blithe eyes look on both of us:
send to those sitting here speed!

Hail to you, Gods! Hail, Goddesses!
Hail, earth that gives to all!
Goodly spells and speech bespeak we from you,
and healing hands, in this life.

The Poetic Edda – the Lay of Sigrdrifa, 600 AD
