A Daily Prayer to Sif

I call to Sif of the golden hair, bride of Thor,
fairest of maids, finest of great Asgard’s treasures,
brightest of the nine worlds’ lights. Grant to me, goddess,
a nature kind and patient; let me be the heart
of my home. May my household be a haven
of comfort and cheer, may we ever be warm
and well fed, may my family find fortune and joy.
Sif of field and fruited tree, Sif of the rowan,
I thank you for your blessings, I pray for your favor.

To Sif

Hail to Sif of the yellow hair, whose will
it is that brings the fruited field to life
and to completion. Glorious bride of Thor,
fair flower of Asgard, treasure of the gods,
goddess unsurpassed in all the worlds,
in kindness and in goodness, in beauty
and in might. Sif of the rowan-tree,
Sif of the golden sheaf, Sif whose hand
we see in the earth’s return. Hail to Sif!

To Sif

Hail to Sif, shining light of fair Asgard,
whose soft voice speaks words of wisdom and might,
whose gentle touch guides subtly but firmly,
whose hair of true gold shines like the sun.
Incomparable Sif, bride of red Thor,
whose hands hold the heart of the thunderer,
mother of children both comely and strong,
compassionate goddess, who holds each child
within her arms, who shows us the substance
within our souls. Hail Sif, steadfast goddess!

To Sif

Hail to Sif, warm-hearted bride of red Thor,
frith-weaving goddess whose hair of bright gold
lights any room, any land, any season.
Sif, none more fair walks the halls of the gods,
none more kind, none more necessary,
goddess whose might supports all existence,
your power coveted by many foes,
defended by all within the walls
of Asgard, honored by all who depend
on your strength and goodness for our lives.
Sif, bringer of bounty, provider
of rich harvests, of fields flowing with grain,
of trees heavy with fruit, of a winter’s worth
of meat and bread, our survival resting
in your soft, sturdy hands. Shining goddess,
we thank you each day for your many gifts,
for our prosperity, for our lives.
Hail to Sif! Hail the giver of good!

To Sif

Hail to Sif! Shining one, gentle one, bride of Thor,
of dwarven gold your hair was forged, a treasure
of unparalleled worth, of might beyond telling.
Sif, kind-hearted goddess, provider of plenty,
of growth, of new green leaves on sun-warmed branches,
of sweet-scented roses, grapes thick on their vines,
of trees heavy with fruit, gardens rich with produce,
of the harvest’s long days of labor, sweat repaid
with food enough to last throughout the winter.
Glorious Sif, home-loving one, defender of family,
of community, of bonds of love and friendship,
maintainer of precious frith, granter of great gifts,
we thank you for security, for steadfastness,
for safety and sufficiency. Bright-haired goddess,
clever one whose soft words and soothing voice
can still a storm of savagery, we thank you for
your many blessings, for your calming influence,
for your warmth and kindness to desperate hearts.
Sif, nourisher of body and soul, we honor you.

To Sif

Hail to Sif, treasure of Asgard, beloved of Thor,
peerless prize sought in vain by greedy giant-kind,
whose hair of true gold falls to earth in bright waves.
Mother of brave UllR and beautiful Trude,
fair goddess whose might draws life from the soil,
warder of folk and kin, in you we know the heart
of family close by and long gone, in you we find
solace in despair, faith and hope within chaos,
a soft and gentle touch, a refuge from the storm.
Shining Sif, far-seeing one, wise one who knows much,
ancient one, kind one, protector of children,
frith-weaver, peace-bringer, holder of the home. Hail Sif!
