Listen, all you who seek,
Our Sun keeps the World Clean with Her Warmth and Light;
She shares her Kind Gifts: Seasons, and Crops, and Rainbows bright.
The Sun’s Brother – our Loyal Moon, Brings the Tides and rules the Night.
And on Mysteries of Heart and Mind, He sheds His Light.
Now find humble Tyr, the God who stepped up when the World He could save.
Once called Tiew, He teaches us: be resposibile, be Helpful, be Brave.
Now find All-Father Oðin, Creator of the Nine Worlds and of each of us.
Once called Wodan, He teaches: seek Wisdom, be Reverent, be Courteous.
Now find Trustworthy Thor, Oðin’s Son, mighty defender of Justice.
He teaches us: be the most Friendly to Friends, but to the Unjust be the fiercest.
Find now -- Frigja as She gathers those who die well, to Her gleaming Hall;
“Live well, Love well, make our World a better Place for All.”
At last we find steady Saturn, born of Sky and of Earth:
Teaching us: be Cheerful, reaping your hard-work’s Worth.
