Simple Prayer

I welcome You, Fairguneis, Great Thunderer, First of Kings.
Yours is the oak and the mountain, guardians of all the worlds.

O Stalwart Protector, may You guide me home when I am lost.
In thanks, I give You this offering in love and adoration.

Poetic Prayer

I welcome You, Fairguneis!
Great Thunderer, the First of Kings!
Yours is the mighty oak
and the ancient mountain,
guardians of all the worlds.

I welcome You, Fairguneis!
Wise husband of queenly Þaibons
and strongest of warriors,
we know You by the lightning,
those sky-searing strikes
dancing on storm clouds.
We look to You in the snowfall
and the spirit-smoke,
glorious god who holds up
Law in one hand and Order in the other.
Receive these gifts, O Fairguneis,
stalwart protector of man,
that I freely give to You.
May You guide us home
when we are lost.
