Hail Day, hail sons of Day;
Hail Night and her daughters;
look upon us with favor,
and grant us victory.
Hail to the gods! Hail to the goddesses!
Hail the all-giving Earth!
Bless us with wisdom, with an honorable tongue,
And healing hands, for the rest of our days.
There are a number of translations of Sigdrifa’s Prayer (here’s one, and another), but this is the version I learned a long time ago, and have written in my book of many things… I’m pretty sure its not an official translation (I’ve never found it written as such), probably a telephone game version of an original translation. But its the one I know, and its the one whose words resonate with me the most.
