To Sunna

Hail to Sunna, bright-clad rider in summer skies,
drawn through thickening clouds by faithful Shining-Mane,
your favors fall freely upon us until day’s end.
Golden light-bringing goddess, your least glance warms us,
melts the last firm-packed snow within the darkest wood,
drives off the frost, turning crisp white grass green once more.
Brilliant Sunna, fair sister of grey-cloaked Mani,
at Midsummer dawn of old were great bonfires lit
to honor you and bring your blessings to the land.
On this longest day we gather here, O Sunna,
giver of life and of might. On this strongest day
we ask your blessing. Hail Sun-maiden–Hail Sunna!

Yule Morning Prayer to Sunna

Yule Morning Prayer to Sunna
strength and certainty
Bright Sunna we see once more, be welcome!
the long night is over, again we look
to the sky without fear, without dread.
Together we held throughout the dark night
and together now we face the new day.
Your return releases us from our fear,
brings us strength and certainty. Hail Sunna!

Yule Eve Prayer to Sunna

Farewell to bright-haired Sunna, friends, farewell!
With the long night’s coming we turn away,
we turn toward home and hearth, toward friends, toward kin.
Together we stay ’til this dark night ends,
together in strength, together in safety,
’til morning comes and with it your return.
For light and warmth we thank you. Hail Sunna!
