Invocation to Njördhr

Invocation to Njördhr

 

Njördhr, Sea-ruler, Pledge to the Aesir,

Ruler of Noatun, Harbor of ships;

God of the Vanir, rich in life and wisdom;

Husband to bold Skadhi, shining bride of the Gods;

Father of Freyr, the God no man hates;

Father of Freyja, the bright jewel of Asgard;

God of the shining, sea-bright feet.

 

Rich in temples and shrines you rule,

Oath-Keeper and Blood-Priest;

Hidden riches are at your hand,

God of Wealth-Bestowal.

God of Ships, Voyage-Blesser,

Master of the Winds and Sea;

Blesser of the Ocean-Harvest,

The gift of the Double-Kingdom.

 

Come in the Dawn, the birth of Summer;

Bless us with your smiling glance;

Remind us of wisdom that lurks in the sunshine –

Heart-true laughter, unconquered life,

Love that preserves and joy that surpasses.

Let the ice-shackles fall from our hearts

That we may dance along the sea-beach.

 

Vanasson! (Son of the Wane!)

Areyáss! (Island-God!)

Noatunáss! (God of Harbors!)

Blótgodhi! (Sacrificial Priest!)

Njördhr, come!

 

”I am Njördhr, the Sea-ruler,

Wealth-Giver and Wind-Tamer,

Wedded to Winter and Father of Spring.

 

The wind and sea ride under my harness;

The wealth of Midgard is mine to bestow;

The rites of Asgard are under my guidance.

 

To me come the children of joy and power,

Laughing and dancing, secure in peace;

I warm the blood of life.”
