The Rite of Day

By Bret Shoemaker 

 

Rite of Day

Great Gods of Asgard,

I arise today,

Awakened by the fire

Of your radiant sun.

Divine is the light that flows

Within and through me;

Strengthen now my spirit

That I may walk in your path.

Cleanse me of all impurities,

Trust that I use this day wisely,

With nobility, honor and prosperity.

Know that my life is in your service.

May the ancestral spirits guide and

Protect me through this day.

And as my deeds reflect my worthiness.

So may they likewise serve

To inspire my Kinsmen.
