Mighty men in grave-mound dwelling,
Alfar, ancestors, with awe we honor;
Forefathers of the flesh and spirit,
Beloved brothers, gone before us,
Holy ones, hear us as we hail you!
Men of the North, from whom our faith comes,
Rognvald Rettlebone and the eighty seidhmadhrs,
Egil the Runemaster, EyvindR Kvelda,
Njal and Thorgeir of Lightwater, Peacemakers;
Sacred seed through Midgard scattered
Grandfathers, we greet you gladly!
