The Difficult Hail

Hail Odin, and his lessons to make us wise.
Hail Frigga, for weaving our beautiful skies.
Hail Thor, as he defends us from above.
Hail Freyja, who fills our lives with love.
Hail Tyr, who will bring justice for all.
Hail Hel, who must now welcome gentle children in her hall.

Wise and mighty gods, let us be not afeared,
even as my nation sheds a great many tears.
As we weep, remind us that the greatest glory is not yet come
For the finest battle to fight is not yet done.
